One serving size of pasta= 2 ounces I decided on 1 1/2 ounces today so I could add more protein from yesterday’s ground turkey. Single Serving Spaghetti alla Carbonara (Just 4...

Anonymous asked: Love the blog! For someone getting started with cleaner eating, can you give any tips on how to take measurements? I weigh about the same as I did when I was really fit- but I have so much more flab now. Since I don't want/need the scale to change much, I'm curious about what body parts to measure, how often to take them, what kind of change to expect, etc. Thanks!!
