-8. Put your food on smaller plates
Eating less without feeling denied is as close as your dinnerware. That’s because while a small portion served on a large plate can leave you craving more, a smaller plate gives the visual signal that you already have more. People go by physical cues when they eat and they know they’ve had enough because they see the bottom of their bowl or plate. A smaller plate full of food just feels more satisfying than a large plate with that same amount of food on it.
And don’t forget smaller bowls, cups, and spoons. For example, try savoring a bowl of ice cream with a baby spoon. Not only does the pleasure last longer, but your body has time to register the food you’ve eaten.
