Downsize Your Dishes

Surprise: Choosing smaller dishes may help you downsize your waistline. That’s because people tend to automatically fill their plates no matter the plate size. The bigger the dish the more you end up eating. So, try using a salad plate instead of a dinner plate or a shallow bowl instead of a deep one. You'll likely consume far fewer calories and drop pounds without even trying.
