According to Harvard Health Publishing, one of the ways to build healthy habits for weight loss is by having breakfast each morning, and eating it mindfully. If this means getting up a little earlier, do it (just be sure to hit the sack earlier at night to make up for it).
Make it a habit to use smaller plates at every meal in an effort to limit the size of your portions. After all, portion control can be tough, as well as confusing, but the simple act of using smaller plates takes most of the guesswork out.
Plus, by using a smaller plate, you will trick your mind into thinking that you’re eating more even though you aren’t, just because the dish looks fuller than its larger counterpart would with the same amount of food. This can result in you feeling less hungry even though you ate less food. Neat, right?
