Health Tip: Limit Food Portions
And help make it easier to lose weight

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Limiting how much you eat during each meal can make it easier to lose any extra pounds.

The Weight-Loss Information Network offers this advice to help you control portion sizes:

  • Measure one serving (according to the product label) and serve it on a plate or bowl rather than eating straight out of the package.
  • To better enjoy your food, don't eat while watching TV or multi-tasking.
  • Eat from smaller dishes and use smaller glasses. Take your time.
  • Focus especially on portion sizes for dishes higher in calories and fat.
  • Store and freeze extra food immediately, so you're not tempted to overeat.
  • Don't skip meals. Hunger may prompt you to overeat.
  • Choose healthy, low-calorie snacks and divide into individual servings.
  • When indulging in a treat, measure a single-serving size.
