MORE HELPFUL TIPS FOR PORTION CONTROL DURING THE HOLIDAYS

1) Use a measuring cup for items like cereal to measure what an actual serving size or portion looks like.  Using a digital food scale is also very helpful.

2) Make sure you eat something every few hours such as healthy snacks in between meals.  Since the brain uses glucose as its primary fuel, once it drops, it triggers heightened cravings.

3) Eat at a snails pace.  Chew your food slowly. This slows down the rate at which you take in food and also leads to better digestion.
