Secrets of Success

Be Honest And True



Measure and weigh your food

More Information:

My best purchase (after the athletic shoes) was a gram/ounce scale I found at Bed Bath and Beyond. I weigh foods now and can stop guessing at portion sizes. Get out those measuring cups too! When you're really hungry, it's easy to guess wrong.

  • Best investment I've made is my digital scale. And I actually prefer the metric measurements! Go figure! - by MARYELLEN301
  • I was shocked how small serving sizes are of some foods. I was way off on my "guesstimates". I really read nutrition labels/serving sizes carefully before I buy food now. - by STEPHDCOX
  • Have been listing..but mainly "guesstimating" the amounts.
