9/04/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 5. September 2013 23:47


One weight control tool I use that can be very enlightening is a food scale.  Sounds extreme?  It’s really educational on how much meats and veggies actually weight.

Steak always measures by weight, heavier than I expect.  That means, if you’re trying to stick to a 3-4 ounce portion, you’ll be eating a smaller piece. Conversely, 4 oz. of shrimp is quite a big portion, as well as 4 oz of spinach!

 You can find a good quality, digital scales that are easy to clean up on Surlatable.com or use Google for alternate ideas.

 There are also pre-printed ‘portion plates’ that can help you better design healthy portions (½ vegetables, ¼ starch, ¼ protein).
