3. PORTION CONTROL
It’s always suggested that Weight Loss Surgery patients use smaller plates, bowls and utensils. It’s been proven in study after study that by using a smaller plate your brain registers the full plate as being “enough”. When using a larger plate and small portions there’s too much “space” and your brain registers that space as “not enough”.
We like to use ramekins as a multi-purpose dish. These Dizada Ramekins are a perfect 3 ounce size and you get 8 of them for only $14.17 https://amzn.to/3EKKzFj

Listening to a Book or a Podcast is a great way to walk or exercise. It really keeps you going, especially when you are getting a bit tired. Audible is a good place to have some fresh listening options – https://amzn.to/3VcCCzG
