Don't fill your plate: Chances are, it may be too big! To prevent mounding on the calories, don't fill up a large plate with what could be more than a serving size. Or, choose a smaller plate to fill up since it'll look like you're getting more.
Savor it: Taking time to enjoy your food and the experience of eating will help you eat less of it, according to recent studies. Besides chewing slowly, incorporate these two easy changes for better (and slower) eating to appreciate your food more.
