Don’t Eat From a Box or Container

718When we’re hungry it feels convenient to grab a container and start snacking. However to avoid over-indulging, never eat directly out of the box. Instead, portion out a single serving into your own bowl and put the container away. You can always go back for more, but in this case you’ll only do so because you’re truly still hungry, not because you’re mindlessly munching away.*

Keep measuring cups handy in your kitchen; they are the easiest way to measure out suggested serving sizes and will help you keep portions under control.
