As spring quickly approaches, I am starting to get nervous about taking off my winter cardigan…
….sooo to get back on track I am trying to focus on portion control. I’m getting to the point where I know what’s healthy and I try to eat a lot of nutrient-food. But it can be hard to stop at half of the bag.
One small change I’ve been working on lately is to split food items into small snack sized portions.
Just think of it as
200 100 calorie snack packs. 🙂
A second small change: my new visual for mealtime presentation.
I’m training my brain to think of dinner portions like how they would be served at a fancy restaurant. Less food for me, please.
Sometimes it’s easy to get down on yourself for not following a diet 100% exactly like you think you should: i.e., number of calories, cutting out food groups or certain ingredients. When that becomes overwhelming (like it has been for me a little bit this winter) it’s important to change your perspective. Like focusing on a healthier lifestyle with one small change at a time.
Thanks as always to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!
What are some healthy food habits you’ve been into lately?
Does your diet go through phases or are you pretty good about sticking to it?
