Three ounces is a serving of meat. Potatoes are fine, as long as they're not loaded up with butter and salt and sour cream.

Steak follows the same portion sizes as other proteins....approx. 4 oz raw or 3 oz cooked. When estimating, follow the no more than the size of a deck of cards guideline.

3-4 oz.....potatoes aren't bad for you! You CAN eat them in moderation (1/2 cup).....

when eating out I generally cut the steak in half and eat just half....

if u went out to eat at a restaurant the portion sizes are usually much bigger.. but i usually go with the size of the palm of my hand or the size of a small deck of cards is about the right portion size for your protein.

What's one portion of steak?

I had steak last night but I didn't have potatoes with it. I just had cauliflower and asparagus with it. I just calculated my approx. calories for my dinner last night and it was about 400ish (450 I think) calories for my entire meal which is perfectly fine with me. Just wondering what one portion size is suppose to be? :)
