designerel, my parents taught me the same too! But just like GlowingMoon, I am much more able to clean my plate at home than at restaurants because of the proportions. I usually share an entree with my younger brother and split it 65-35 between the both of us when eating out at restaurants; that way, no food goes to waste.

Oh yes, I always clean my plate... within reason. I'd never force myself to finish if I am geniunely full. There is an old Chinese superstition that the more grains of rice you leave in your bowl at the end of the meal, the more pimples you have. Silly, but that's what my parents told me when I was young and it always stuck with me. Totally untrue though, of course.

At home, I do clean my plate. That's because I have appropriate portions. I can't say the same about restaurant servings.

People leave food on their plate? I can't leave a rice grain on my plate or it'll drive me nuts.

I usually do... I eat very healthy, balanced portions though so I enjoy it :)

I always feel the need to finish everything on my plate. Its kinda sad sometimes but I can't help it.

I still feel that way more often than not. My dad gets in my head like that.
