Certain studies have implicated that using smaller plates makes you eat small proportions and feel satisfied with it. The psychology is such that in larger plates food seems lesser in proportion while the very same quantity in a smaller plate may seem like a large amount of food. Hence, you end up being satisfied with less without even realizing it. The best way to do this would be to move the large plates, cups, glasses and utensils to a secluded area in the kitchen and keep cabinets filled with the smaller plates and bowls instead.
