I hear a lot of advice about leaving food on my plate. I cannot imagine doing that intentionally.
I weigh and measure all the ingredients into each recipe I make, and I plate from the kitchen like a restaurant, rather than passing serving bowls. I put exactly my portion of everything on my plate, or plates as the meal may be. Then I get to eat it ALL!
I remember an old WW leader saying that a rubber spatula was an essential part of the WW program, because if you measure out your portion you can scrape up every drop. She said that if no one was looking you could lick your plate and still be legal.
I guess I'm basically greedy about my food. I want it all!! If I measure it out, I can have it all. It's my way of making sure I never feel deprived.
