Put The Fork (or Spoon) Down

  • It really does help. And drinking your water before meals begin helps too. - by HAPPYMOM8
  • this is one that does wonders for me too - when I remember to do it! After that first bite, nothing ever tastes quite so good so if you put the fork down ... you might decide you've had enough. Thanks for reminding me - by BESSHAILE
