31 Ways to Eat and Slim #19 (CAUGHT UP..YAY)

19) Bento box it.

Basically this tip is about portion control. Self says to get a bento box, a Japanese-style food tray. The size reminds you to stick to sane servings. You can only fit a half of a small sandwich or cut-up turkey and lowfat cheese, some grapes, a salad and a small dessert.

My skinny - You don't need a special bento box just measure out your servings and count up your calories. This also ties into other tips but eating over the serving amount is only due to ... eating too fast, being ravenous when eating, etc. Stick to eating breakfast, a healthy morning snack, lunch, a healthy afternoon snack and dinner (with a possible healthy dessert depending on calories and time of day) and make sure you keep track with your journal and measure the serving sizes.
