When I buy crackers or cookies (low fat of course) I come straight home and divide them into snack bags, 1 serving per bag, then I print off lables stating the date I bagged them, the product in the bag and the nutrition facts (ex. calories, fat, fiber, and sugar) per serving. This way I am not sitting down and unconsciously eating 6 servings, when I am on the run I can just grab a bag and go, and I can save the bag as a reminder when I track my food intake at the end of the day.
it also helps in keeping a running total of calories throughout the day.
