Rule-of-Fist: Easy Portion Control for Cravings

In today's Studio 5 segment, I addressed common cravings and the two easy "rule-of-fist" measures to keep your portion control in check.  This easy rule amazingly applies to most snack foods, from potato chips to chocolate chips.
2 easy ways to measure:
· Open handful (not overflowing, but can't close into a tight fist) = 60-80 calories for larger-sized items (chips, crackers, pretzels)
· Closed handful (tight fist - completely shut, can't see what's inside your fist) = 60-80 calories for smaller sized things like nuts and candies.
