How many of you weigh your food? I moslty do, but I will go a few weeks or a month without weighing just to see if I stick to what I think a portion is.
Today as I was putting my lunch together, I grabbed a zip-loc bag and put some pretzel nuggets in it to go with my sandwich today. I thought it looked pretty good, I didn’t even look on the package to see how many nuggets a serving was.
It said 30 grams was one serving, or 110 calories.
I took by ziploc bag and weighed it on the scale. 110 grams!! What I thought was 1 serving turned out to be over 3 and would have cost me 350 calories!! Yikes! I quickly remedied the situation, but I was so glad I checked.
I think a lot of times after you have been in weight loss mode, you get a little confident like you know what a correct portion is, so for the next few weeks I am going to be weighing everything, just to make sure I’m not going overboard!
Do you own a food scale and how often do you use it??
