To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume, which inevitably means one thing: portion control. But you’re not necessarily doomed to a growling stomach until you reach your goal. 

“Portion control doesn’t mean you have to eat tiny portions of everything,” says Lisa Young, author of “The Portion Teller Plan: The No-Diet Reality Guide to Eating, Cheating, and Losing Weight Permanently.” “You don’t want to feel like you’re on a diet, but you have to eat fewer calories.” 

Here are 14 easy ways to cut portions, trim calories, and lose fat without counting the minutes until your next meal. 

  1. Start with a glass of H2O
