Can EasyLunchboxes help you lose weight?

Renee B. recently posted this question to our lunch-packing community via Facebook:

“Does anyone use EasyLunchboxes for their work lunches? I am currently on Weight Watchers, so this looks like a great way to portion control and pre-pack, but I’m wondering if it’s not big enough for an adult and more geared toward kids?”

Lunch packers weigh in:

“I use them for my husband Shaun (active duty soldier). They hold plenty for him, although I’ll often pack whole fruits (apples, bananas, oranges) in the bag, not the box.” – Military wife Shannon Carino, who writes BentoLunch.net (see top pic).

“I don’t use them for Weight Watchers, but they are perfect for adult lunches and portion control!” – Astrid Lague (Lunches fit for a kid).

“GREAT for portion control. Instead of just grabbing the whole bag of chips or cookies or whatever, I can only include a few. I put silicone muffin cups in there to make my “treats” portion sizes even smaller, while making them still look “full.” Plus they add a splash of color, which makes meals look more appetizing. Studies with kids show that they think the same exact foods are “tastier” when presented with a variety of colors.” – Kendra Peterson (Biting the Hand That Feeds you)

“It’s hard going from just eating “whenever” and making the conscious decision to regularly feed your body through out the day … and with healthy food choices. But, to keep my metabolism burning, I have to ensure I am staying fueled. It was a hard concept to embrace, but it is true: frequent, small (and healthy) meals through out the day do MORE to help you lose weight than just consuming three meals a day … 

To help me, I decided to start packing lunches and snacks for myself … Having snacks and lunches ready to go in the fridge — perfectly portioned — makes it SO much simpler to stay on top of eating.” – Rachel of Following in my Shoes.
