Dawn’s Tips:

New research shows egg whites and popcorn are high volume foods that help you eat less without trying and stay more full/eat less at lunch.

Eat Carbs
Carbohydrates assist in keeping the hunger hormone, ghrelin, regulated, assisting in satiety.

Plan Snacks
Research suggests winter/holiday weight gain isn’t just food at meals. It’s snacks & grazing that cause the most damage.

Change Your Table Cloth
Research suggests that eating from white table cloth with white dishes gives you better portion control.

Set the Mood
Use candles and soft music when you eat to encourage you to slow down – this will naturally help you eat about 80 calories less per meal.
