I found this at the bottom of the list and found I have better food portion control.
I eat breakfast every day. I have lunch. and dinner.
My bad days are on Wednesday and Thursday when I cook for the seniors.
I want to munch so I make sure i have vegies to munch.

IAJOEB, that sounds like my daily food schedule ...

7am breakfast
1030 am snack
1230 lunch
400 afternoon snack
630 dinner
830 dessert/pm snack

I will skip the pm snack if I am not hungry or had a really big dinner. portion sizes are really my down-fall.

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28:7

My problem is I wake up around 6:30 am and have toast or oatmeal.
Then I want to eat again around 10:30.
Then Hubby wants to eat around noon, and I join him.
Then I am at work and nibble there.
then I am hungry about 4:30
then I want dinner at 7 PM
Then I want to snack in front of the TV about 10
Then I wake up about 4 AM for a fridge raid
Then it starts all over again..
I am on a merrY-go-round named never ending buffet emoticon AaRgh!

We have switched to using smaller plates. It's amazing the trick it plays on your mind! It helps because I have a difficult time leaving food on my plate. This way I can finish everything on my plate, but still eat a smaller portion.
We also serve dinner in the kitchen and do not have any serving platters on the table (except the salad). That way I am less likely to get a second helping.
I also find that by having a mid-afternoon snack and I less famished for dinner and thus better able to control how much I eat.

Watching my portion size is something I constantly have to think about.

I will use a measuring cup when serving food, that way I can see how much I am putting on my plate. We have also switched to smaller plates. That way it looks like we are eating more. Sometimes if is something that I really like, I will take a drink between each bite. It takes longer to eat and if everyone is done I will skip on seconds.

What are your tricks and tips?
