Ever heard the saying, “Our eyes are often bigger than our stomachs”.  What this means is we’re often looking at food and wanting more, but our stomachs are full.  To ensure that you don’t over eat do what I call “the full test”.  After you eat your first portion of food, walk away from the table and get a glass of water.  The simple act of stepping away from the table will help you access if you’re still hungry, or if you’re eating more because there’s more available.  Drinking a glass of water prior to taking another portion will fill up your stomach a little more (plus hydrate you) and you’ll be less likely to have a second helping.
