Weighing Food


33 posts in this topic

Does anyone weigh and/or measure their food? I don't, I eat until I decide that it is probably enough, then stop. I have lost almost 91 pounds.

I think the question really is... who doesn't! Mr. Redmaxx... you are a rare bird I bet...

Interesting. To me it is strange to weigh/measure your food. Thanks for the response.

Depends on what it is. I tend to measure things like Cereal and milk until I can judge how much is a serving (3/4 cup, 1/2 cup, etc). I rarely measure meat as I pretty much can only eat 3 - 4 oz tops before I get full. I think it's good to measure once in a while to make sure you are staying within your Nutritionist's guidelines because I can definitely eat way more at 6 months than I could at 3 months. Don't want to stray too far off the norm.

If I don't measure my food I overeat and then I'm miserable. My head still thinks it is smarter than my stomach.

I did in the beginning, I'm now 18 months out and have a good feel for how much I need/am eating.

I'm a cheese freak so I bought a scale to measure my meats and cheeses. It is a habit I am still working on.

That's really how it should be, in my opinion. I have not bought a scale or anything. It's time to listen, really listen, to the body for me.

Over two years out and I still weigh everything. Either by weight or volume depending on type of food. I also log every bite and keep it in spreadsheet form. I can keep track of my weight trends compared to my macros that way.

For me, it is the only way to be accountable.

I've lost and kept off 140 pounds since April 8th, 2014. The only weigh (I didn't misspell this word lol) I could do this is/was by weighing my food. It's so very easy to go over 4 ounces because that's not much food to start with! I don't know how you had the same surgery I did and you aren't weighing your food.
