Want to lose some weight and don’t know where to start? Try using a smaller plate.

Apart from ensuring that you are engaging in an adequate workout routine, you would have to make changes to the amount of food that you are consuming too. Cutting down on portion size may be essential if you are trying to reach those weight-loss targets!

Use smaller plates

A simple way to help you cut down on portion size is to use smaller plates when having meals. If you are having soup, you could similarly use a smaller bowl. Doing this regularly will help you to gradually become more accustomed to consuming smaller portion sizes. Remember to chew your food properly before swallowing and eat slowly.

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietitian if you require assistance in putting a meal or snack plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
