I have the worst case of portion distortion ever. Really. I can eat an obscene amount of food. I don’t know why, but it just takes me forever to get full. It gets so bad that I have to just refrain from keeping certain foods in the house. Thank goodness I am somewhat blessed with a halfway decent metabolism because I should gain a lot more weight than I do (and I do, believe me). But, it’s not all about just what the scale says. Overeating also makes me feel lethargic, sluggish, depressed and just plain stupid sometimes.
With all that being said, when I received my 4oz. Yum Yum Dish, my eyes were really opened! That is what a snack-sized portion should look like? Whoa. I eat like 12 times that – easy! I mean, I have gone through dieting phases where I will weigh my food on a scale, so I guess I have an idea of what it should look like, but I definitely have not been eating that way lately! I needed this reminder.
The awesome part about using the Yum Yum Dish is that you can fill it up. When you portion out 4oz. of food and put it in an average-sized dish, it looks quite empty. Fill the Yum Yum Dish to the max so it doesn’t really look like you are depriving yourself. Mind games do work when it comes to dieting!
I also love that the bottom of the bowl says “OVER”. I was eating GoldFish crackers out of it and I actually listened to the bowl! It said “OVER”, so that’s it. I did not go back and finish the bag like I normally would. I tend to mindlessly snack while sitting by my computer, so I need to be told what to do…even if it’s by a bowl.
Like many people, I have a New Year’s resolution to start watching my diet more carefully. Yum Yum Dishes will help me tremendously. They are a very easy and helpful tool for portion control!
