nav_logo_hm[1]The size of our plate plays a large role in how much we eat. Studies have shown that the bigger the container, the more we are likely to consume.  The bottom of the bowl is a useful mental cue for us to stop eating or check if we’re full.

If eating food out of a package, put it on a plate first.  This simple step can make all the difference in calories consumed!
