Yeah, my mom made me and my siblings eat everything on our plate. It was to the point where she served us boiled spinach. I really detested that food as a child. My older brother and I refused to eat it. She served that same plate of food to use for three days, three times a day. After she realized we hated that food that much she finally threw it out and let us eat something else. I have learned from this experience. If my kids don't like something, I watch how they react after trying it a few times. If they truly don't like it I never force them to eat it. Now, if you are used to eating all your food on your plate, and you get yourself a smaller plate, that could help. BUt you have to watch out that you don't just pile on the same amount of food that you would if it were a bigger plate. The best thing to do is to give yourself less carbs, more protein and veggies. Don't eat more than your open hand. with protein, your fist.
