Buy (and use) smaller plates and bowls. Beware of going too small, using a little side plate won’t allow enough room for adequate amounts of salad and vegetables. Check out our perfectly sized dinnerware at www.spoonit.co.uk
Go mini. Although this can mean you don’t get as much for your money, the mini versions are usually only half the calories of the full size alternative.
Buy single serving packets instead of share bags and large packs (this can help with the portion size of a range of foods from dried fruit and nuts, to chocolate, biscuits and crisps).
Say no to ‘going large’. When eating out avoid the tempting offer to get more for your money, keep to the smallest size (even when ordering a latte). If you’re eating out you could always share a starter or pudding to halve the portion (and save money!).
Use simple measures to help judge your portions, like cups or spoonful’s. For an easy way to measure your carbs check out The Carb Spoon® at www.spoonit.co.uk
