To assist with portion control I bought a really nice set of small plates and bowls that are for my use only (sorry kids, these are momma's!). Instead of a "Jethro bowl" of cereal or ice cream, I have a dainty size portion in a beautiful bowl just for me! I also started using small spoons and forks. Sounds crazy, but whatever works, right!

Your smaller plate for portion control can look like a banquet !
Maybe you've made the move to using smaller sized plates and bowls to help cut portion size, but you don't like the look of a smaller-sized plate in front of you. Make your place setting appear more glamorous as well as LARGER, by using full size plate as a charger, or a salad plate under your smaller bowls.
Fill the space in front of you (and I DON'T mean your belly!) to make meal more appealing and less Spartan!
