Did you know that only 1% of the total population can gauge serving sizes correctly? Understanding how much to eat is vital if you want to lose weight, gain weight, or maintain your weight. The first thing I’d recommend you do is get a measuring cup and play around with different measurements for a couple of weeks so you can get a feel for different portion sizes.
And don’t worry you wont have to carry around a measuring cup every where you go. It wont take long for you to learn what a cup of milk looks like or how many ounces are in a small chicken breast – Trust me!
Below is a cool little table outlining correct portion sizes for different foods and everyday objects you can associate that particular measurement with.
What kind of strategies do you use to make sure you’re eating the right portion sizes?
