weighing out pasta or rice

Hello as above do you weigh out how much rice or pasta you are having I know its free but surely too much is bad? so if you do weigh how much per person are you having? Also do people limit potatoes?

weighing out pasta or rice

I always measure rice and pasta. Normally 75g of pasta, and 1/3 of a cup of rice per person. I've always measured rice and pasta, even before I joined SW.
Potatoes get controlled I guess. Depending on what I'm using them for, but generally 1 potato per person.

Funnily enough, I only weigh pasta/rice now that I'm maintaining. I still tend to have 2 jacket spuds, though, if they're my main meal

The suggested weight on back says 75g so that's only reason I started using it but is enough for me x
