  • Avoid adding heavy cream or sour cream to your dish. Replace it with natural yogurt or low-fat sour cream.

  • Weight your macaroni before cooking: In this case, it's much easier to count how many calories you've got from the ingredient.

  • If you decide to stick to proper nutrition, try making a blank for a week. Food containers for each day organize food intake.
