Health Tip: Control Portion Sizes at Home

(HealthDay News) -- Limiting the amount of food you eat is key to losing weight and maintaining weight loss.

The Cleveland Clinic suggests how to control portion sizes at home:

  • Serve your food on smaller dishes.

  • Serve smaller portion sizes, and skip second helpings.

  • Pack leftovers in single-serving containers. Freeze any leftovers.

  • Always dish out a serving, rather than eating right out of a carton.

  • Keep food not yet served away from where you're eating.
