The best thing I do with portion control is cut everything in half. If I go out to eat, I go ahead and ask for a to go box and put half of my food in it. That way when my plate LOOKS empty, it helps trigger me to stop. When you're at home, do the same! Fix your 'normal' plate and then half it. But still, make sure your halves have the right amount of nutrients. Veggies and healthy proteins and such.
:) just some tricks that I learned. They are cliched, but the work for me. There is something about a full plate that makes me want to finish it. So if there is only half and the other food is hidden... I get full on less.
