Whitney Rohrer had managed to eat healthfully while living solo. Then came Shawn, her boyfriend. "When we moved in together, it was a free-for-all with food." In six months, Shawn gained 10 pounds, and Whitney, 40. "I was mortified when my doctor told me I was classified as 'obese.' I knew something needed to change." That was almost three years ago, and with portion-focused changes, both Whitney and Shawn are eating less, feel healthier, and have dropped all the weight they had gained—and more. Here, Whitney shares her top three tips for loving what you eat while controlling how much you consume.
