Use small utensils to eat your meal. I use the junior size spoon and fork that was used for my children when they were toddlers. This slows me down. For that special ice cream treat, I use the baby spoon. Of course, I do this at home only, as my husband would be embarrassed by his wacky wife.

I shrink all my eating utensils...I use a salad plate rather than a dinner plate whenever I can. And at home (I haven't quite the courage to do this out yet), I eat with a silver (yes, I'm worth it...but they had been my children's) baby spoon & fork. My salad plate looks so full & I'm forced to slow way down with the small utensils. I also use a beautiful hand blown wine glass for beverages. Elegant and useful in keeping portions at bay.
I use a beautiful small plate for my meals and small utensils..example my favorite utensil is a demitasse sterling silver spoon. then I chew every bite 20 plus times. The whole process is much slower and I know when I get full as opposed to shoveling it in. 252
