Today I learned the benefit of measuring and weighing foods! I was preparing lunch and found some broken tortilla chips. They were little pieces but I was hungry so I decided I'd still eat them... Something told me to try measuring/weighing them first and what do you know ... Those LITTLE broken pieces of chips equaled 2 oz! So I only ate 1/2! YAY !
But imagine if I had done what I normally would do... and just eaten them because, "they are only little fragments." You know what, those little bites add up and I could have easily eaten 300 calories without even knowing it! HMMMMM, so THAT must be how we can workout for hours on end, feel like we're eating "better" and never see results! As they say, Little foxes spoil the vine. I will do better to count all of my intake so I can see results!
Just wanted to share!
