If you’re serious about losing weight, here are two important tools you shouldn’t do without: a food scale and measuring cups.
Why? One of the most common mistakes people make is eating portions that are much too large – while believing they’re eating an appropriate amount of food. It’s no wonder we have “portion distortion,” given all of the super-sizing that’s done in restaurants and food displays. But we can re-educate ourselves.
To get a true sense of portion sizes, use a food scale and measuring cups for two weeks whenever you’re eating at home. After that, you’ll be able to tell if a portion is too big just by looking at it.
