A few weeks ago I completed a 30-day lifestyle experiment called Take Half Away.
During the experiment, I set aside half of my portion at every meal to eat later. To aid in this endeavor and mitigate my consumption of disposable containers I always carried a reusable to-go container with me. I documented my meals and how I thought and felt throughout the experiment in photographic and written form on the project’s blog.
By engaging in this portion control experiment I gained valuable awareness into my eating habits. I am more conscious of how I think about food and my body’s relationship to food. My tendency to overeat has been significantly reduced, I eat healthier, and I spend less money on food. Maybe this project will also inspire you to improve your relationship with food!
