Tip 45 is
Stick with Kids’ Sizes
Want to enjoy some popcorn at the movies? Stick with a kids’ size bag (sans butter) to save about 200 calories. By today’s standards, “small” sizes are not very small, so it’s best to downgrade to a child’s size for a truly small-portioned treat. “Losing weight is not about eliminating your favorite foods; it’s about moderating your intake. When you stick with small amounts, you feel less deprived and more satisfied because you are managing your portions well,” says Batayneh.
