    recovering from the "clean plate" syndrome

    I have been raised with the clean your plate mindset.

    what techniques have you used to change this mindset and honor your body stopping eating once you are full?

    You could just throw it on the lawn and eat until you're full...

    Love it!

    Umm...:
    -Eating low carb to control my food addiction
    -Remembering "I am not a trash can" and using the trash can where appropriate. That includes things like putting food off the plate BEFORE I start eating. I used to have a friend who was very successful managing her obesity and she would pour water over her dish as soon as she had the thought she should quit eating

    I just put on my plate what I think is an acceptable amount to eat. If I'm still hungry I'll nibble on something else.
    This is recent mind, I used to eat like a pig.

    yes I have found the starting with a much smaller portion is key

    I never had to "recover", I simply embraced it and made it a part of me. Whatever I don't eat, I'll put it back in the pot and into the fridge.

    I still clear my plate. It's good to be full. But I typically eat once a day, maybe twice sometimes, so it pays to stuff myself. More fun, anyway.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Use a smaller plate.

    Seriously--you'll put less on it, and then when you "clean your plate" it's less food.
