Ive always keen a clean plate person - its was my upbringing - eat your dinner theres people who haven't got one etc parental pressure - I always empty my plate I don't like to see other plates not empty. (Yes i have in the past cleaned them up for others to)
So as part of the change in my lifestyle I want to learn to leave things on my plate. Good i hear you shout. And yes I am doing it not everytime but I am some of teh time (big changes little steps)
Now I should inform you that my wife cooks our dinner for two reasons I'm rubbish (and shes great) and more importantly shes home 2 hours before me.
Recently our son went back to University and my Wife has not adjusted the amount she is cooking for just the 3 of us.
Last night I was really proud of myself because I had left a roast potato and a small bite of chicken on my plate the problem was the plate to start with was enormous. Easily 2 meals.
There is no one to blame but myself - no control - just justification that its my main meal.
So it hit me today the cure is so simple - today Ive been shopping and bought my own plate its about 2/3rds of a normal size.
Its pathetic but if it works what the heck. (Knowing me I'll go up for seconds LOL
Have a great day
