Do you eat to fill up

Do you eat to fill up or to clean your plate? This is another habit I am trying to break. I have never made my kid clean her plate for this reason. I believe that I eat past full. So I am trying to always leave something on my plate and slow down. How about you?

its no use if you have so much on your plate and refuse to finish. how about if you have a small amount at first, then if you are still hungry, get a second helping. it does not waste as much food, and you will be able to have a clear idea on how much you are able to eat. that is what my mother does, and i think it works rather well. hope this helps!!

I try not to put more on my plate than what I will eat. I am, however, trying to take what is a full serving since I am watching the calories. Marsha
