52 Little Changes For Big Weight Loss Results - Tip #41 - Leave the Last Few Bites on Your Plate

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Forget about crash diets and killing yourself with exercise -- these small steps can help you lose weight in a big way - from
Tip 41 is,

Leave the Last Few Bites on Your Plate

Shaving off those last five bites of your meal you can cut, on average, about 250 calories. Do it every night and that can turn into a loss of 26 pounds in just one year. Try this the next time you eat out: Put the last five bites into a doggy bag and make it into a meal the next day. Add your leftovers to a vegetarian protein (like beans or tofu) and serve with a spinach salad. If you loved your dinner the night before, having a little bit more the next day is always a pleasure, says Batayneh.

    Good reminder. I love this idea. In fact, my WW lunch group and I usually cut our meal in half and we all have a take home for dinner. Sometimes it's easy like half a sandwich, but sometimes, like you say, you have to make a decision to leave a portion(MAYBE 5 BITES, OR MORE) on your plate. I always feel better when I don't finish my restaurant meal anyway. I used to go home w/o the extra food, but with a BIG tummy ache; the beginnings of serious GERD. LESS IS BETTER! Plus, you get to enjoy leftovers, even homecooked meals! emoticon
