A hit that I heard from somewhere is that when eating out get a to-go box RIGHT AWAY and put half of your meal in it before you even start. I am going to try and do that more often.
Interesting idea!

Good tip, though I have more self control I never would have thought of it. It will work if you cook your own meals, put half of the dish in the fridge for another meal to stop the urge to return for seconds.

And use smaller plates.

I got some sort of pizza concoction and it was delicious... and I put 1/4 of it back in the box and brought it home. A full pie is about 950 kcal, so I wasn't doing anything crazy like putting HALF back, but man I wanted it!



That is all, nothing momentous nor worth dignifying.
You are a far better man than I.
I would have ate the pie then ordered one to take home and that might not had made it all the way.
Like getting fries to go at Wendy's. Better get two because one ain't gonna make it home.

Leftover pizza is a myth ... often talked about, never seen. Just like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
