When it comes to working on weight loss, small changes can go a long way to making a big difference. These little tips and tricks might seem simple (and they are!), but they can help you to cut down your calories and food intake without you even noticing. The way that you set your table can actually have a significant impact on how much food you eat. Check out these easy tips for setting your table for weight loss success:

- Keep serving dishes on a surface other than the table- such as a counter or buffet. Having serving dishes nearby makes getting seconds (or thirds) too accessible. You’re less likely to overeat if you have to go somewhere else to get more food.
- Use fine china. People who eat off of nice plate ware tend to enjoy their food more and feel more satisfied afterward.
