How big should that portion be?


Watching your weight?

Always be aware of portion sizes, especially when you're eating out. Portions in restaurants tend to be much bigger than portions you eat at home.

Take action:

Use this easy and helpful guide to a few portion sizes that won't require any measuring: carbohydrates/starch - approximately the size of your fist, a tennis ball or one slice of bread; protein - the size of the palm of your hand (no thicker than the 'pinky joint') or one to two packs of cards; fruit - the size of your fist or a tennis ball; vegetables - unlimited.
