Savings: You can save a lot on food costs when you think about what you eat. Don’t overeat at a buffet table either, even though you can get a lot for the one “all-you-can-eat” price. The cost for this is feeling uncomfortable and an unnecessary calorie intake.
Remember this: It’s too easy to overeat! Huge amounts of food are available everywhere. It’s tempting to try every dish at restaurants – several times. Even at home, many of us take seconds out of habit. It takes some time and determination to get used to the one-plate approach. It’s also good to remember that you only start feeling full 20 minutes after eating.
Reducing your carbon footprint: Eating 200 grams less each day can reduce your carbon footprint by about 2% per year. Emissions are lower because of a decrease in land use, energy need and fuel consumption.
