Want a quick and easy way to judge the right portion size for you?
Okay, it’s great to know WHAT you’re eating but what about HOW MUCH you should have in a single portion.
We’ve never been a proponent of calorie counting as it can be wildly inaccurate, become obsessive, or be too complicated and time consuming.
That’s why we like the hand portion method. It gives people a great place to START. It’s supposed to be a ROUGH visual guideline that you can then CUSTOMIZE based on your needs. This means you’ll have to pay attention to how you feel after eating at that portion size.
- Am I still hungry?
- Am I full and there’s food left?
From here, you can add or subtract a bit for the next meal.
What do you think about this method? Will you be trying it out? Let me know in the comments!
