Salad Plate

I just heard about a new diet book based on eating off a smaller plate. I guess even our plates, not just our portions are getting bigger! But I've already been doing this for like 9 months now. I only eat my dinners off of a salad plate and no second helpings. Trust me, there is plenty of food and after awhile those regular plates look gigantic.

You're doing so great, and it shows!!
Maya is 7 1/2 months now so no more excuses for me - I started working out again (and will probably need to cut down on the chocolate consumption too ;)

I forgot where I read it, but I just looked over an article that compared the portion sizes of foods in 1974 (i think) and 2008. Plates are like 3" larger, meaning people stack more crap. They also compared America's portion sizes to Europe's. Crazy!
