The terms “portion size” and “serving size” are often used interchangeably but are actually quite different. Portion size refers to the amount you eat in one sitting, while serving size is the recommended amount of food you should eat.
 
Whether you are looking to achieve or maintain a healthy weight, eating the right amount of food is just as important as what you eat.
  
From working from home, going back into the office or getting back to be social with friends on the weekend, many of us may find it more difficult to control portion sizes. 

Leverage these tips to keep your portions in check:

  • Drink water
  • Dehydration can be mistaken for hunger. Have a glass of water before your meal to help you feel fuller and prevent overeating.

  • Fill your plate with green veggies
  • Fill up your plate with green vegetables so if you do eat a little extra, you are eating vegetables that are low in calories and rich in nutrients.

  • Eat slowly
  • Eating quickly can prevent your brain from processing that you are full. Take your time when eating a meal. Savor each bite so your body is able to recognize those important hunger and fullness cues!
