This easy weight loss tip, takenfrom my upcoming book  EatSmart and Lose Weight: Research-backed Ways to Lose Weight without Diets orExercise   was recently featured on the healthyeating website Eatthis.com 

The reason I discourage puttingserving bowls and platters on the table during family meals is that when thefood within easy reach, it’s too easy  (andtoo tempting) to have a second or third helping.  – Not such a good idea if you’re trying to loseweight.

You’re better off platingthe food in the kitchen, restaurant-style. That way you (or anyone else) will have to leave the table to getanother helping.  Most of the time weonly want a second helping just because the food is sitting there staring us inthe face. 

Preparing or plating thefood in the kitchen with a set amount of food on it when it’s placed on thetable, can cut reduce the temptation to have another helping that you probablydon’t need.

Below is the tip as itappeared in Keenan Mayo’s"article "Sneaky Ways You're Gaining Weight and Don't Know It, Say Experts" which was posted on  the website Eat This, Not That, earlier this month. It was one of 12 tips contributed byvarious other experts in the field 

You Dine with Platters on the Table, Thanksgiving-Style

One of the easiest ways to avoidover-eating is to make it slightly more difficult to actually reach your food.Conversely, one of the sneakiest ways to overeat is to simply have the entiresmorgasbord in front of you all along.

"Putting platters on the table is one way you'reguaranteeing that you're going to eat more than you want to," says healthand food journalist Ruth Houston. "This will only encourage andfacilitate a second and third helping. Instead, always plate your food in thekitchen, restaurant-style."
