It seems like a lot of condiments have serving sizes of two tablespoons--salsa, peanut butter, sour cream, etc. I was making an egg burrito a while ago and put sour cream and salsa in it. I didn't realize until afterward, but I had accidentally measured with the 1/2 tablespoon, so I was actually only eating 1 tablespoon total of each. Since then, I always do this, and I almost always have enough of the condiment. It helps me save on fat and calories, but still get the flavor. Try it out!

Knowing your calorie enemy before consuming is an easy trick.
I've found that if i put in my meals before even preparing them, I can make adjustments accordingly if I'm a little high on the fat side, or low on protien. It's helped me immensley. And with SP's MOBILE application, I have no excuse not to do it all the time.
I always thought it was a myth that drinking water would make you feel full and eat less. Recently, I've been drinking more water and eating high fiber snacks such as cereal or WW toast. When I combine water with fiber, I really do feel full and eat less.
Benefits of this trick: -More glasses of water consumed -More daily fiber -Less likely to go over calorie limit -Feel full and not starved
