Don’t be fooled! Portions are smaller than you think most of the time. One tablespoon of olive oil (or any oil) has 120 calories. See how much you are using. You may try to be healthy but at the same time may be providing more calories than you think. Look at the serving size of rice or pasta. Measure it once and eyeball it on your plate so you remember for next time without having to re-measure. Look at labels and their serving sizes. Some regular ice cream has 200 calories or more for ½ cup—and who is eating only 1/2 cup? Maybe you can eat ½ cup of low-fat ice cream topped with a sprinkle of chopped nuts?!
