It’s a lot easier than you think! A lot of it comes down to what’s right in front of you when you sit down to eat!
Researchers in Australia studied 100 adults in a portion control study. After educating the participants on “eating slowly” and eating only until they were full, the researchers gave one group a 600-gram portion of macaroni and tomato sauce and the other group 350 grams of the exact same meal.
“Overall, the large-portion participants ate 34 percent more food than those given the smaller helping.”
This goes to show that even if you’re educated and know how to eat slowly, most people will eat what’s right in front of them! So the key here is to be mindful of what you put on your plate.
