Why This Works

People base their portion size on how it looks relative to their plate, bowl, cup, and utensils. And so the bigger the dinnerware, the bigger the portions.

But being the fussy person I am, I never found any that met the Queen’s approval. So either Marshall’s or TJ Maxx I bought a few small hand blown glass plates and some small bowls, also. They were $1.99 each. Not a large investment for eating in class all the time. They are clear glass with blue running threw them. I love them. I also use a salad fork for all in my in house meals. I am weird. Invest in fun dinner plates and bowls, your new healthier body deserves the very best.
