Downsize Your Plate and Your Waist






Ask Glen!





Q. Glen, I got to the salad bar eat from the healthy side of the menu and it just does not seem like enough! Any suggestions?

A. Use smaller plates. When you're trying to get a handle on portion sizes, your dinner can drown on those 10'' plates. Suddenly, those healthy helpings can look smaller than ever. Trick your brain by enjoying servings on a smaller platter. Not only will you feel like you're getting more, you'll quickly get accustomed to proper portion sizes. It will be difficult to "overdo" it when there's no room on your plate. Just remember going back for seconds defeats the purpose

Glen's Bottom Line: Eat Less!!!

Any personal health questions or problems mental or physical or before starting any diet or exercise program.

Please consult your physician !
