The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.

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!
