Have you seen the SP quiz, "Portion sizes?" It might be relevant for you.

No, you don't have to eat everything on your plate. If you feel full, you can quit eating! Then you eat fewer calories than that with which you started. That's a good thing, right?

you do realize you could measure your leftovers and stop eating and still have an accurate count, right?

if this happens frequently, you need to be serving yourself less in the first place.
if this happens frequently and you're not hitting your minimum goals, you need to finish your plate as well as looking into more nutritionally dense foods.

there isn't a single right answer to this, just a lot of choose your own adventure type options.

When I'm cooking for myself, which is most of the time, I weigh my food and calculate the calories as I cook. When I'm eating, I don't know what to do if I'm getting full before I finish my plate. Should I finish eating and have an accurate calorie count or stop eating and just estimate?
