Rule No. 2: Read labels for serving size"Pre-portioned snacks help you not overdo it," says Koff. But here's the key: When possible, opt for snacks with only one serving in the package so you won't mindlessly eat more than one serving. If you start reading labels for serving sizes, you'll notice even small packages have two or three servings. For a healthy serving size, aim for 15 grams of carbs and 7 to 15 grams of protein.
If there is something you really like that doesn't come in single-serving packages, you can still buy it and split it in half. And here's a helpful tip: Once you split the food, put the uneaten half in the trunk of your car so you can't reach for it in a moment of weakness, Koff says.
