It’s time to start eating out of smaller containers. A study released by Cornell University showed that people who ate out of large containers ended up consuming 50% more calories than those who opted for a smaller dish. Smaller containers help you pace your consumption and will protect you from the discomfort (and weight gain) that comes from overeating.*
The next time you order take-out, resist the urge to eat directly out of the large container. Instead, portion out the appropriate amount of food onto a smaller plate and take your time eating at a slower, more digestive-friendly pace.
