If you really want to stop overcooking (and overeating), try using a few helpful kitchen tools that can help keep you on track:


FOOD SCALES are error-proof, waist-saving devices! Never guess your quantities again.


MEASURING UTENSILS allow you to accurately gauge your servings and avoid piling on unwanted calories. Be especially mindful to measure peanut butter, nuts, salad dressing and olive oil which are commonly overestimated.


OIL MISTERS are calorie-slashing gadgets you can use anytime your recipe calls for oil. You'll use far less fat by spraying instead of drizzling, and save 120 calories for every tablespoon of fat you trim.


STEAMERS cook your food with no added fat and the gentle heating process preserves more of the vegetables’ nutrients than boiling.
