  • I agree with this one, too!

    When I started watching my weight and started watching my portions - I immediately switched from the big dinner plate to the medium sized one. I fill this one up - and it works - I feel full and rarely go back for seconds. If I used a bigger plate, I'd probably fill that one as well and eat everything. I blame this mentality on my parents making me clean my plate off as a child. - by DEBORAHBROWN1
