Even if you've hacked out some less-than-healthy food from your diet, it's still possible to overdo it with healthy food. Use this simple hack to help control your portions.
Over at the parent-centric blog Parent Hacks they shared a really handy hack for parents with small children: Use Ziploc bags and small Tupperware containers to create single-serving portions of snacks that are easy for kids to open and that help teach them portion control and keep them from eating the whole box of snacks.
Little kids aren't the only ones that can use the help of a little portion control education. Eating the proper amount of food is as important as eating good food — it's just as easy to pack on weight eating too many almonds as it is eating too many chicken nuggets. If you've resolved this year to overhaul your diet, steal a page from the Parent Hacks playbook and take a moment to figure out what the proper portions of the new food — midday and evening snacks especially — you're incorporating into your diet are. Bundle the individual portions up and you'll have ready access to just-the-right-size snacks in your fridge and pantry.
