Size of food serving portion

Changing the size of food servings you dish up

One of the main changes I've made this week is to take more notice of serving sizes. The easiest way to do this is to look on the side of the packet to see how many servings is recommended per meal. For example normally I'd cook a whole packet of pasta and we'd share it between three people. After looking at the correct portions I now realise a packet is meant for four servings. Therefore I don't now cook the whole packet and everyone doesn't leave the table feeling like they are about to burst.

This last week I also had one splurge (if you can call it that) on a Red Rooster chicken wrap. Normally I'd have had a wrap, large chips and coke. This time sticking to my healthy eating plan I opted only for the wrap. This way I didn't feel like I was missing out while at the same time I stuck to my overall healthy eating plan.

When loosing weight I've found it's also important not to feel like I'm depriving myself of what I enjoy. In this case, I do enjoy eating out on the odd occasion. Otherwise I know I won't be able to stick to it for long.

I'm hoping small changes here and there will add up to a healthier slimmer me :)
