5) Eat slowly. Put down your utensils and take a sip of water after every few bites.
6) What is "feeling full"? You should feel like you'd be able to easily take a moderate-to-brisk walk after a meal. Stop eating before you reach the point at which you wouldn't feel comfortable doing that.
7) Give yourself the leeway for small setbacks. If you eat a piece of cake that you hadn't planned on, don't beat yourself up. However, don't get so down that you chase that piece of cake with some ice cream, cookies and soda pop.
