Remind yourself not to overeat using messages on place cards

SparkPeople recommends eating more slowly, and I've been making an effort to chew more thoroughly. To remind myself to do this, I made a little card saying, "Slow down". I attached it to a place card holder that I keep with my condiments.

Setting it in front of me when we sit down to eat reminds me to look at it during my meal, and I chew more thoroughly.

It is working really well: I feel full before I have overeaten.

Tip for Fast Eaters At Work: Separate Containers!

I typically throw all of my lunch's components into a single dish and take it to work with me. I also typically eat my lunch in less than 5 minutes.
I've discovered that the more dishes I bring with me, the slower I eat. So, the next time I want to toss that piece of chicken and the leftover corn and rice together, I'll just pull out three smaller containers and take them separately.

Eat with a smaller spoon

When eating anything that needs a spoon, try using a smaller spoon instead. My 6oz yogurt lasts far longer with a "baby" spoon that it does with a regular spoon.
