Secrets of Success

Portion Control




Buy a big bag of nuts, or dehydrated fruits. Measure them out and put them in plastic containers so you don't have to think about it when you're hungry in a pinch. I leave some in my car! You can put them in 100 calorie measurements or 50 calorie.

    I do this too, and have found it especially handy when traveling. If I can't find something healthy to eat, I can have some nutritious, nonperishable snack to hold me over. - by STABYHOUN
  • I do this and my husband doesn't feel like I am depriving him of snacks and goodies - by SLAPPY985
  • I do this too. A great way to have a selection of snacks that are only 100 cals a bag. Of course you can make this any size you want. Just keep them all the same, or close. always over estimate so any spurious cals are on your side. emoticon - by DOTTYDRUID
