Many of us have gotten so used to overriding our bodies natural hunger cues and instead of listening to our body’s messages we just keep on eating large portions until the food on our plate is finished.
Firstly let me dispel the difference between a portion and a serving. A serving is the amount of food recommended on educational material (nutritional label) and a portion is the amount of food you choose at a specific mealtime, which is normally more or less than a serving size.
So, if you still struggle to listen to your body’s biological messages why not try these tips to help shrink your portions.
