Lose More By Downsizing Your Dinner Plate

The more food in your plate, the more you’ll eat — regardless of how hungry you are. Studies find that the less food in front of you, the less food you’ll eat which will help you with your weight loss goal.

So instead of using regular dinner plates that range these days from 10-14 inches (making them look empty if they’re not heaped with food), serve your main course on salad plates (about 7-9 inches wide). 

The same goes for liquids. 

Instead of 16-ounce glasses and oversized coffee mugs, return to the old days of 8-ounce glasses and 6-ounce coffee cups.

Start downsizing your meals and you'll start seeing results.

Remember to drink a full glass of water 30 to 60 minutes before every meal.  You'll feel fuller.
