Depending on how much you have to lose some people may need to cut portions in half then cut that half into a quarter and end up near an eighth of their former portion. The reason is the body will become more efficient with less food so you have to shock it into submission until your mind learns between a 1/8 and 1/4 of huge historic portions is normal.
Of course I still have treats in really small portions. I can not live on no chocolate cake or 4 bites of ice cream from time to time.
If cutting down feels austere you are doing it wrong.
