Weighing and Measuring
I think weighing and measuring only works in the short term. It's good for teaching someone portion control, to fine tune your diet once you're at a desirable body composition, and you want to track how certain foods affect you.
Or, in my case, to shed some light on my undereating. But anymore than two weeks and I think it falls into that neurotic/compulsive behavior bucket.
I'm at the point now where I've got a good idea of what I need to eat each day to hit my minimum requirements and so I can retire the weighing and measuring, food journal be damned.
