You may think I have gone crazy but if your tempted by trigger food like I am with Cheetos. I just stopped buying the large bag and separating because I know I can log enough minutes to compensate but their empty calories that leave me hungry enough to eat more. If you want Cheetos it may be better to stick with one .50 bag and instead of buying a cake, I get a cake pop once in awhile. A savings in the store can be wasteful of your workout time.

I just watched a video with a girl talking about servings sizes and I wanted to share what I learned from her cause I think it's a great idea! She said that whenever she bought a bag of food she would immediately seperate the bag/box into ziplock bags with one serving per bag that way she could keep up with how much she was eating better. Because when you are hungry you tend to eat more- so seperate your food beforehand if at all possible to help keep track!
Single Serving Containers (like those from the deli that they put potato salad in) are great for both storing, freezing, and taking to work as single service containers. The small size is great for small sides, and the mid size is great for soups or larger portions. They freeze well, and I even use them in the microwave if I don't have an alternative bowl. They are cost effective too. I also send left overs to other peoples homes after a party or dinner.
I purchase the single serving containers in two sizes (the same lids fit both) from GSF stores.
