Salad Plate vs Entree Plate

Helping portions with eating on smaller plates.

Eat Off Of Your Salad Plates! You will serve yourself 30% more food on
your larger dinner plates.  Since we often “eat” with our eyes, using smaller dishware is a simple way to reduce portion sizes without feeling deprived as the food “looks” like enough on the plate. 

We tend to be externally connected versus physically connected to hunger.
Internal hunger cues, such as rumbling stomach, a slight headache,
fatigue, irritability and decreased concentration- are meant to remind you to
meet your energy requirements and maintain your natural set point weight.
Reconnecting with your physical signals of hunger and satiety can help you
acquire the internal power to regulate your food intake.

Starting with small behavior modifications such as eating on smaller plates can be a great way to start getting more physically connected to your hunger and satiety cues.
