Cut Foods Into Small Pieces To Fool Your Eyes



I often cut up food that I am eating into smaller pieces so that it looks like I have more to eat, which satisfies my eyes. My children have been fooled by this for years when it comes to me serving them a favorite food, so why not do the same myself? If I have a high calorie item that I'm eating for example, pizza, I just cut it up smaller so it spreads all over my dish. This will save you calories and will also help you to savor each small piece.
