Keep portions smaller than your first. It's easy to overeat when you have too much food on your plate. Smaller portions help prevent overeating. Also, try eating off of a saucer instead of a regular plate to control portions.
Control your hunger with filling foods that are low in calories. Eat mostly fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds and leave animal proteins to the lean cuts. Avoid starches, and focus on the vegetable as being the main part of your plate. Fruits and vegetables can help fill you up without adding a lot of calories. These foods will satisfy your hunger and help you lose weight.
