Your Plates and Bowls Are Too Big

Did you know that the size of your plate or bowl can lead to overeating? Researchers at Cornell call it the large-plate mistake. When there's more empty space on your plate or in your bowl, it makes your portion appear smaller than it actually is. Instead of piling more food on your plate, reach for smaller plates and smaller bowls whenever possible.

When cooking at home, keep measuring cups and spoons on hand to make sure your serving sizes are appropriate: this way, you'll know exactly what you're getting.
