Knowing the right portion not only helps to avoid eating extra pounds but also makes the food last longer.
So, next time plan your meal for the next week and buy accordingly. Thus, you’ll be able to avoid wasting both your food and hard-earned money.
6 Cook and carry your lunch to work
Eating out lunch every day costs a lot and also increases extra calorie. Restaurant foods are expensive and mostly full of fat. Also, why will spend money on tax while eating at a restaurant when you can make an extra dish with that money in your kitchen?
If you're on busy schedule, then cook on weekends. Prepare a large portion so that you can carry the food to work. Thus, you can minimize your restaurant visits for having lunch every day. Your wallet and waistline - both will thank you.
7 Leave all junk foods on a planet
Catch a spaceship to leave the trash full of candy bars, chips, soda bottles on the planet to make sure you don't consume them anymore. I am afraid, our planet may deny to keep those junk garbage.
They are easy to find but costly and make you sick. Forget them.
8 Switch to fruit instead of dessert
A dessert filled with cheese and sugar add at least extra 400 calories. So, skip dessert and switch to fruits to live a healthy life.
Splitting dinner is also a good idea of portion control as well as for saving money. If you and your partner visit a restaurant occasionally, then split the food to avoid overeating and high costs.
