Before I explain, imagine: There’re only you and your love one in the house. You made a 1 pound loaf bread, without any preservatives chemical, it lasts in room temperature for 3 days, fridge 1 week.
If you have to finish 12 slices in 3 days, means you two have to eat 2 slices a day. Sound not that much right?
You only need one slice homemade bread every morning. Take two = over-eat.
Not to mention, if your love one forgets to eat for just one day. Who is going to finish the bread?
Either you, or the rubbish bin.
Preparatory Portion Control, that is DO NOT make more than you SHOULD EAT right now or within three days. Making half pound, still 12 slices, you can eat 2 slices. It feels like you eat more, but actually, you’re still in balance diet.
I know I’ve no self-control when it comes to food. I must find a way to help myself from over-eating anything. So I make less.
No argue! No temptation.
By the way, that’s why the Chow’s household always has no leftover, rubbish bin is just for rubbish, no food.
