Today I got on the scale.
Besides, I definitely needed to listen to this week's meeting topic. Two sometimes ugly words that really do make all the difference: PORTION CONTROL. This week I'm going to focus on measuring my food. Everything from my morning cereal to my glass of wine at dinner. I recently read something from jennifer Hudson who pointed out that measuring our food allows us to have those things we would otherwise fear were taboo. Pizza is only "bad" when we don't account for how much we eat, and how much we can afford nutritionally. When we measure it and know its value we are in control.
I am taking back control!
Your turn to weigh in...
Tell me about your portions. Do you have certain foods that you would avoid because they feel too dangerous? How would measuring those foods and knowing their nutritional value change that feeling? Do you measure the food you eat at home? in restaurants? What tools do you use to measure?
