A journal of running, healthy food, mountains, bikes and technology by Julia Revitt

I personally hate that bloated feeling I get at the end of the day – it makes me feel fat and sluggish.  Good news though – it’s really easy to stop the bloating with a bit of planning and understanding.  Mostly it’s due to overeating during your evening meal which is really easy to do especially if you’ve tried to be ‘good’ throughout the day and arrive home really hungry…

One simple way to control your portion sizes is to downsize your crockery.  The trend for new crockery at the moment is big – huge plates and enormous mugs so it’s easy to fill these up and eat all that is in front of you.  Swapping to ‘normal’ sized crockery will encourage you to put less on your plate (or in your mug) but will trick the mind into thinking it’s getting more than if you half filled a big plate.  Buy crockery with a wide edge to it too and only fill the centre portion.  You shouldn’t feel stuffed or bloated from any of your meals if you control your portion sizes.

    How do I sign up for your posts by email? I’m keen on getting brand new articles delivered directly to my email if it is possible; helps to keep me from being forced to check over 2 dozen different websites daily, is this doable?
