WAIT! Not so fast buster…you guys will have to guess:  Hint #1 They’re with you everyday…  Hint #2 Everyone has them…  Hint #3 You need them… You guessed right! It’s your hands. Your hands are a great tool for measuring proper portion sizing and, according to the American Heart Association; hands are an excellent way to keep track of your eating anywhere you go.

1 cup = fist

3 ounces = palm

1 tablespoon = thumb

1 teaspoon = tip of thumb

½ cup = cupped hands

To help tone your tush eating a clean diet is essential. Follow these useful tips below paired with regular exercise to achieve a toned back-side for everyone to envy.

apples, pears, peaches, oranges or melon
