Measure and weigh your food

My best purchase (after the athletic shoes) was a gram/ounce scale I found at Bed Bath and Beyond. I weigh foods now and can stop guessing at portion sizes. Get out those measuring cups too! When you're really hungry, it's easy to guess wrong.

    Best investment I've made is my digital scale. And I actually prefer the metric measurements! Go figure!

    I was shocked how small serving sizes are of some foods. I was way off on my "guesstimates". I really read nutrition labels/serving sizes carefully before I buy food now.

    Have been listing..but mainly "guesstimating" the amounts.
