A question I see from new folks a lot is "what is a serving" - For example - 3 oz of meat is about the size of a deck of cards. A leftover joker taped to your refrigerator door marked "meat!" can be a helpful reminder. Cake - a medium post-it! Butter? A small one.
Take a picture of yourself as naked as possible, no makeup, hair pulled back, and don't smile. Now post this pic on the front of your fridge and the inside of your pantry.....when you reach for that extra snack and are confronted with a visual of how miserable you feel about your weight, trust me the snack attack will quickly pass!
