Tips to Avoid Overeating


Winter Holiday Overeating Avoidance (or WHOA!)

Over the course of a single day, the average person makes more than 200 food 
decisions -- most of them unconsciously. These choices include when, what, where and 
how much to eat, and can drastically affect our weight.
Portion sizes are influenced by factors like plate size (larger plate = more food) and packaging (i.e. eating straight from the box or bag vs.consuming a pre-measured amount on a plate or in a dish). To help cut calories, buy smaller plates and skinny glasses. Repackage that barrel of pretzels from Costco into snack-size bags.
Minor adjustments like these can help pare 100 to 200 calories from your daily diet, and help you lose 10 to 20 pounds a year!
