Portion Control Tips You Can Start Using Today.
1. Use Smaller Plates

By using a smaller plate you can fill the plate and at the same time help to control the portion of food which is being consumed. Eat enough protein so you feel full even if you are using a smaller plate. Protein will keep you full and also helps to build lean muscle.
2. Drink Water before every Meal
By drinking water before you eat, you're lining your stomach to overcome any dehydration and will naturally eat less food.
3. Mindful Eating
Practise mindful eating by focussing on your meals and avoiding distractions. By slowing down you're eating and focussing on your food your less likely to overeat.
4. Add Veggies First

5. Measure Portions
Measure your portions before you add them to your plate, ensuring the correct balance of macronutrients. Using a teaspoon, tablespoon or a cup to measure the correct portions of protein, complex carbs and healthy fats.
