Sounds silly, I know, but I really do use smaller plates and utensils to eat. Slows me down..and makes it look like I'm getting bigger bites and more food! Hubby always uses a dinner plate, I use a luncheon sized plates. I use salad forks and small teaspoons for everything.
Funny - I actually LIKE using the little plastic spoons you get in take out places when they are small like I like. I even use them at home sometimes.
