  1. Be aware of the size and shape of containers. It’s the amount of food that counts, not what it looks like.
  2. Serve food on smaller plates and bowls. Empty plates and bowls cue some people to stop eating.
  3. Use nutrition labels, paying attention to the serving size listed. Consider the facts; don’t guess at how many calories you’re eating.
  4. Look past the packaging. A food’s package or the language on a menu can lead you to actually like a food better, increasing your chance of overeating.
  5. Keep visual reminders of how much you’re eating. Keep wrappers, empty containers, bones and other reminders of how much you’ve eaten nearby.
  6. Think about eating a healthier meal. Don’t just focus on separate parts of the meal.
  7. Control your purchases. Don’t let signs lead you to buy more than you need.
