Easy measureing. Since servings are not always easy, for things like cereal, I keep the proper serving size measuring cup in the container. I get the exact serving size without having to pour into a measuring cup.
You get the exact serving size rather than having more and gaining weight from improper serving sizes.

Buy extra measuring cups and keep the cup in the container so it's always handy. For example, I keep the 1/2 cup measuring cup in my oatmeal box, and I use it for the scoop. Plastic measuring cups are cheap and this keeps me honest and on track.
An ice cream serving is usually 1/2 cup. Put it into a 1/4 Measuring Cup & eat it from there. It satisfies my taste buds & tricks my fat craving demons all at the same time. If I want more, I dish up another 1/4 cup. It feels like I'm eating seconds but really it's only 1 serving
Equipment Needed: 1/4 Measuring Cup, spoon
