Like many modern US Americans, I've come to realize that I have a VERY inflated idea about what a "normal" portion size is. I need to get my head right, so that this
is normal, not this
. I want to be one of those people who gets nauseous at the very idea of eating too much food, and I want every tip/trick/mental hack/and idea in the book to do it! Tiny portion eaters of metafilter, please show me the way.

I've made big changes in my life before. I know it can be done and I'm willing to work hard.
I need to make the mental shift so that eating normal portions feels right and good, not like I'm depriving myself. I want to be one of those folks who makes 3-4 meals out the average American restaurant portion, or orders a kiddie ice cream to share with a friend instead of getting a double adult scoop.
Conversely, if I can also make eating obese American size portions feel wrong instead of hooray more yummy food! I want to do that too.
Give me everything you've got!
