I know that 0.125 of a cup is 2 tablespoons - so you are looking at roughly 2 tablespoons

I would say that if it's a recipe here that specifies .13, they actually mean 1/8 of a cup, even though it's technically a little more. When I enter .125 C of something into the tracker on my own, it rounds up to .13.

I'm so glad you asked this question. Sometimes when I track my food intake the only option is cups and I've had only a tiny amount. I usually guesstimate down, down, down, sometimes saying 0.15 cup. I've never ~really~ known what that means! LOL

Look to see if there's a weight option. Anything with pieces is hard to measure in a cup; you can double the calories by accidentally packing them in, or by using the stuff in the bottom of the package that has broken up by itself.

Yes u are correct 1/8 cup is .125 so it would be a tad over 1/8 cup. .005 more so I would just do 1/8 cup.

I'm a bit embarrassed to be posting this, but a number of the foods (sliced almonds, cheese) on my food plan are calling for "0.13 cup". I'm not sure how to measure this. Would it be a tiny bit more than 1/8 of a cup?

Thanks!
