Tip 1: Don’t Eat From the Bag or Box While this tip definitely dirties far more dishes than Bachelor Mike would like, I can assure you that you will eat less if you put food—any food, but especially chips—in a bowl and put the rest of the bag away. Even better: Measure out your food and track it. But start with the bowl. Put a reasonable amount of food into it, then eat the food slowly and enjoy it. When you’re done, you’ll have to make a conscious decision to get more, and you’ll have to get up to do it. All that presents a series of barriers that will often prevent you from overeating. If you sit down with the bag, the mindless ritual hand-to-mouth delivery system kicks in, and before you know it the bag is empty, while you’re full of chips and regret. So put reasonable amounts of stuff in bowls or on plates. When you’re done, you’re done. Go do something else—like listen to Iron Maiden while looking for hidden messages on the album cover. Or something like that. Additional pro tip: Rinse the bowl or plate right away with hot water so you don’t have to scrub later. I hate scrubbing. It’s time I could spend shredding on the guitar.
