Be portion proficient

Hello! Yes, it’s that time of the year again! The holidays are here and what tends to come with holidays is celebration, food and LOTS of it. Follow these 5 tips to help with portion control during this holiday season.

  1. Sharing is caring! Split an entree with a friend or family member.
  2. Swap out big bowls, plates and utensils for smaller versions to help with portion control and help you eat smaller bites.
  3. Don’t forget to get creative! Utilize measuring tools, your hands and everyday objects such as a deck of cards, a tennis ball, a golf ball, etc  to help you understand portion size.
  4. Plan ahead! Before eating out at a restaurant, make sure you look up a menu to see what healthier food options they offer.
  5. Try drinking water before meals. Drink 4-8 oz of water, wait 15 minutes before eating.
