If you want to lose weight you need to make your own food, and measure everything you eat. You eyes deceive you. One trick you can do is eat on smaller plates. It sounds silly, but you eyes think its a lot of food when its not as much.
Why is it that we won't settle for some things, but we lay back and let people poison our food. We convince ourselves that we “deserve” a break and then accept food that tricks our brain into thinking we are not full (so we keep eating). Did you know that on a label, the ingredients are listed in the order the amount? See how often SUGAR is number 2 or 3 on the list. See how many of the ingredients you can't pronounce.
