At last week’s meeting, the topic was portion control. The meeting leader showed us some examples and had members come up and pour out what they thought certain portions were. I know I am guilty of pouring 8 ounces of wine when it should be 4, but I am pretty good at measuring out side dishes of rice and taters.
One area I know I am probably overeating is in meat. A lot of the measurements in Weight Watchers is by the ounce. I don’t have a food scale so I am totally guessing when I cook. I might pick up a food scale if they aren’t too expensive.
The leader suggested we eat off of salad plates so that our eyes and mind think we are eating a plate full of food. This is something I already do, but I think I’d like to have pretty salad plates to make my meals feel special.
This weekend I’ll head to Pier One or Hobby Lobby and see if I can’t find a couple of pretty salad plates on the low low.
Are you good with portion control? Do you measure your food or just eyeball it?
