One of the hardest things I have had to practice on my diabetic diet is portion control. I have learned it is easier if I do not serve dinner family style. I now fix my plate in the kitchen and carry it to the dinner table. I am eating half the amount I used to eat, so my plan was to save the other half for my lunch the next day. Sounds like a plan, right? Wrong! What do you do when your husband eats 2 big portions of everything and then goes back and finishes off your next day's lunch? It's hard to get angry with him when he sits there rubbing his full tummy and complementing me on my cooking. LOL. I have gently hinted to him that portion control would be good for him, too, but so far it isn't sinking in. Maybe I need to gently hint with the frying pan.
