I am having trouble with portion control. Eating healthy foods jut too much. I am going to spend the extra $$ and buy individually packaged food. I hope that will motivate me to just eat 1 portion.

I've had to do that myself. Even with healthy bars. I traded out my old bars for kid's size or mini bars. I have nut packs too. Makes me a lot more aware of my choices. Even still I open one then two then three mini bars or bags of nuts. The decision is much more OBVIOUS. Some days I slip and feel guilty. But then I get back on track and realize I have a chance to make good decisions today.

You can just cook as much as you want and then portion it before you eat it.

I'm not in your same situation because I cook for my family (no special diets or foods at home); but when I cook I already know how many servings the meal is going to be, and then divide accordingly.

Good luck!
