    After reading the article "Portion Distortion" this is one of the first things I started doing AND getting a scale to weigh my food. Almost to my goal, so it IS working!!!

    This is one of the first things that I changed and I still use the smallest plate. emoticon

    This was one of the first things I started doing when I realized my portions were out of control! It's a tremendous help as long as you make sure not to cheat by overfilling the salad plate :) *guilty*
