It's not just about what you eat; it's about how much.
5. Slow down.
When you’re scarfing down food, you’re far more likely to pass the point of no return, eating until you feel stuffed. Slow down at mealtime and savor each bite. You can even use your grandma’s old rule of chewing each bite 20 times to get into the swing of eating slower.
6. Eat pre-portioned snacks.

Have plenty of clean-eating, proportioned snacks on hand so you’re not tempted to reach into a never-ending bag of cookies when a craving strikes. Use this handy this of 20 clean-eating snacks to help you stock up.
