  • Once you get used to it, it isn't really that hard. - by JEANNE229
  • I weigh and measure for a while and then I feel like I can "eye" my portions pretty well. But I always go back to weighing and measuring every few weeks to be sure my eye is still accurate :) - by HEIDIBB
  • Yup! My "eye" gets a little ambitious. But the measuring cups, spoons, and scale always seem to be so much more consistent! - by KEAKMAN
