Yum Yum Dishes Review

It can be very hard to limit your portion sizes. Nobody wants half a cookie, or only a very small scoop of mashed potatoes, right? One's health is very important and you can still eat all of your favorite foods, BUT just control your portion sizes. Yum Yum Dishes helps with this.

The Yum Yum Dish is for using to enjoy your favorite snacks. It helps remind you when you're all done! Buy it in a bag, but eat it out of a Yum Yum Dish. The dishes come in a set of 4 in red, blue, green or yellow. They are handpainted, and microwave and dishwasher safe.

I was sent one 4 oz ceramic yellow Yum Yum Dish. I have to be honest though, when I first received it I looked at how small it was and had dreams of constant hunger in the near future dancing through my head. I always try to watch my weight and it's hard to see how little of a portion you should be eating, even though you know it's the right thing. This little bowl is a great source of motivation though. When you finish all of the food in your bowl (the key is to NOT refill it) it says "Yum Yum Time is Over." When you look down and see that message staring right back at you, you know that whatever you're eating, it's time to stop and not have anymore.

I used this bowl the other night for dinner. I made mashed potatoes, chicken, and veggies. I put a small portion of mashed potatoes in the bowl and told myself this was all I was having. I ate my potatoes and did not have anymore. I would normally have an extra spoonful or so, which is something I shouldn't do. I was pleased with myself for having such a small portion of an unhealthy food. I knew that I made the right choice though.

These bowls are great sources of motivation and will certainly help you lose weight, if you're trying to. You will feel so much better about yourself when you have smaller portions of your favorite foods, knowing that you won't be depriving yourself but still keeping on track with your fitness.
