Measuring how to measure

01_hand_avocadoThere are many ways to measure portions, some messier and more convenient than others – and all ways of controlling your portions are key to your quest to slim down and fit into smaller jeans..

To measure portions, you could do any of the following and still be confused:

  • Count calories
  • Weigh your food
  • Guess how much you should eat.
  • Try not to eat anything bigger than your stomach, or be like Miss Piggy and not eat more than you lift.
  • Use your Round knowledge and know that an apple is a perfect snack portion and that most food the size of your fist is a portion.

  • Write down exactly what you eat and drink. Make note of portion sizes.
  • Jot down when and where you eat.
  • Note who you ate with or if you ate alone.
  • Use smiley or sad faces or other emoticons to show how you feel.
  • Begin journaling the day you start your Round Diet.
  • Include any diet visualization notes and draw any images.
  • Look at your diary often to look for patterns, along with what works and does not work.
  • Use colored pencils, pens and other festive drawing and writing tools that you thought were just for kids.

Round Food Intake Form

A recent study conducted by the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research, found that dieters who kept track of what they eat lost almost double the weight of those who diet without keeping track. Tracking your food is also a great way to know what you are eating throughout the day. Many people are surprised that they eat more than they think they do. It also helps you see changes over time that you might not notice from day to day.

On the form, there is a section for tracking Roundercises (Round exercises) to help you remember to exercise in combination with eating healthy Round foods.

Download the the Round Food Intake Form, print it, make copies, place in a binder, and fill out daily to track your Rounding down progress.
