Bento boxes help me to easily control my portions when pack a lunch, and they're fast! My boxes have one one-cup compartment and two 1/2 cup compartments, so I just fill it, and I know exactly how much of what is in there!
Get a plate that is is an inch or so smaller than what you are used to. The smaller portions will look right on a smaller plate. It stops working when you get to a plate that's so small that you cease to believe it can hold a full meal.
One thing about bento is that you're limited in how much room you have to work with, so it enforces a limit.
