Secrets of Success

Using Measuring Cups And Spoons!



I have been measuring everything I eat since I started on this journey. The other night, I even ate 1/4 cup of Rum Raisin ice cream out of a 1/4 cup measuring cup. It really helps me to see what actual portions are, and helps me to feel completely in control of what I am eating.

  • I agree; I keep my scale on my counter as well as my measuring cup and spoons! Before really tracking what I was eating, I eyeballed it - made what I thought was 4oz of ground turkey, then measured ended up being 10oz!!! I couldn't believe it; I was about to eat 2.5 times a regular portion. Since then, I make sure to measure out EVERYTHING! It all adds up... - by ALAZARO951
