What's Your Portion Personality?

Even the most careful eaters and cooks let their inner portion police take a holiday. And that's when the calories pile on.

  • If you like candy bars, buy a bag of the mini size. 1 regular-size candy bar equals about 9 minis, which can easily be divided into 3 calorie-reasonable snacks.
  • Precut goodies in the pan or pie plate. An 8-inch pan divided into 16 pieces yields a brownie with 44% fewer calories than a pan divided by 9.
  • Hide the candy. Out of sight, out of mind. Better yet: Put your stash where you have to walk to get a handful.
  • Mini ice-cream cups are perfect ½-cup portions. If you prefer to dip from the gallon container, use a scoop (it dishes out a ½-cup serving).
