Plates in restaurants tend to be overfilled

Whenever I'm eating out and get a plate that is filled with way too much food, I ask for a take-home container as soon as the food is served. I immediately put some of the food into the container (how much depends on how much food was on the plate), before I start eating.

Sometimes when I'm done eating I even add to what I'm taking home as there was still too much food on the plate.

I should add that I've had no problems doing this, even in fine dining establishments.
