    With many trying to lose weight this time of year, here are some help in controlling portion size. The recommendations of portion control below come from a review of 72 randomized trials.

    -Use smaller plates (9”), bowls and serving spoons.
    -Avoid eating straight from the package. My weakness is eating ice cream from the container. Most of the time I put some in a small bowl and put the rest away.
    -For foods you eat regularly like cereal or nuts, keep a cheap measuring cup or spoon in or near the package.
    -At a restaurant, choose the smallest portion. If it only comes in a large size, divide it in half and take half home.
    – For dinner, serve a single serving and leave the rest in the kitchen. Anything that makes you think twice about overeating is helpful.

    Helping Resolutions to stick:

    Tip #1 Replace the habit or activity you want to replace with something else! For example, if you want to spend less time on your phone, commit to reading a book instead of just quitting Instagram.

    Tip #2 An app called Streaks helps your to-do list by encouraging you to keep your “streak” going, a bit like a game. Sometimes it’s the little things that add up to make a big difference.
