what is normal? I’ve got some tips for easily portioning out serving sizes as well as some great Weight Watchers 1 Point Snack ideas for you. I’m a snacker by nature and I know that can be the pitfall for many people trying to lose weight. I’ll show you the snacks you don’t have to feel guilty eating and how to enjoy the proper portion sizes so you can stay on track to your weight loss goals.
Having a few very inexpensive tools to help you portion your food is a huge help. I found these awesome measuring scoops at Walmart for a couple bucks. I LOVE them because the scoop side is in common serving size portions and the handle of it contains a measuring spoon side which works great for measuring out nut butters, oils and dressing. Often times I will have some ranch dressing with my salad and think that I can eyeball what 1 Tbsp looks like. It turns out my idea of 1 Tbsp and an actual tablespoon are very different! Always measure! Once you have an accurate idea of what a teaspoon or tablespoon of something looks like then you can go back to eyeballing if you must.
I also love having the little reusable snack containers on hand. These are the smallest size, typically used for things like salad dressing. They are perfect for portioning out 1 point snacks. I also love the divided containers which allow me to portion out snacks ahead of time and have them at the ready, while keeping them separated. Finally, having the snack size zip top bags is a must.
Measuring out your portions is a must. When you decide to have a snack just whip out a measuring scoop and measure it out and put it in a bowl or bag then put away the container so you aren’t tempted to grab more. Portioning out snacks ahead of time is the perfect way to grab a healthy snack without the temptation of grabbing something more convenient. At the beginning of the day (or week) portion out single servings of each of these snacks so you can easily grab them later!
