I love cereal, and I love big fat bowls of it (which can be multiple servings). To trick myself, I fill up a bowl with fruit-- bananas, berries, kiwis, pineapple, whatever I have-- and then pour a measured serving or half-serving over the fruit. Looks like a HUGE full bowl, but isn't! Top off with unsweetened almond milk at 35 calories to be EXTRA GOOD :) (or skip milk and use low-fat yogurt instead). Yum!

I have been measuring my cereal with a measuring cup and I know I have been cheating by making a very rounded scoop. Recently I started weighing (using a digital scale) my servings. I have realized how much I was over pouring and it is harder to cheat the scale. I haven't missed the extra cereal.
