Weight Management

The fact is that tracking works. Find a way that you can track your intake that works for you; whether it be writing what and how much you eat and drink in a journal, your day planner, or your calendar. You can develop lists of your favorite foods that can help you enter your intake more quickly.

Measure out foods you regularly eat (such as a bowl of cereal) once or twice, to get a sense of how big your typical portion is. Also measure out what 1/2 or 1 cup portion size looks like to help you estimate how much you eat.  Check the serving size information on the Nutrition Facts label of packaged foods.  It describes what the "standard" serving size is, and how many are in the package.

The secret to success is making changes and sticking with them.
