Half of what you want

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Day 20:

This was to be used when out in buffet or restaurant situations to only eat half the serving.

It sounds so simple but will be the hardest part of my eating. Leaving food is like the little voice calling to me....come eat me....you left me behind.

It's a hard transition to get to, leaving food behind kills me.

But life is about portion control, so next time, I'll just take half.

    We must learn not to take more than we can eat!
    I also grew up with the "clean your plate" concept and still do it. Just have to put less on it.

    You stated this well...it's hard to leave food behind especially when it's been drilled into your head that you need to eat what's set before you (except my mom still will tell the story about sticking the liver behind the radiator during the depression because she really didn't like liver...hmmm)

    I grew up being told to "clean my plate" and it is hard to leave food on my plate. I work at a restaurant and I'm always amazed at what people leave.... wish I could!
