Here are suggestions on how to avoid overindulging in food, courtesy of the U.S. Department of Agriculture:
- Eat just an appetizer for your meal, as portion sizes usually are smaller than entrees.
- If you order an entrÃ©e at a restaurant or are served a meal at someone’s home, try splitting the portion with someone else.
- When you get your meal, immediately set aside half of it to take home and eat later.
- Don’t feel like you have to eat everything in front of you — when you start to get full, stop.
