Secrets of Success

Measure! Measure! Measure!



Any snack items (nuts, dried fruit, trail mix)I bring into my house, I immediately measure into containers with the correct serving size. I find it is too easy to grab a bag of something and eat several servings without even realizing it. Plus the containers make it easy to grab and go as well.
