Depends on if the cheese is skim milk, part skim, etc and is it from cow's milk, goat or sheep? Generally a slice is 1 oz but it might be less calories. A one inch cubs could be if it is a dense or hard cheese; soft cheeses like Brie or Swiss would be bigger. Check the packages and buy a scale. Even a little postal scale will work although not as fancy and only for smaller items. If you can get a big one especially for food its a good investment in your health. Weighing in grams can also get you more food than portions by volume like a cup, too. A real bonus if you like to visually see how much or how little you get.

A good estimate is two dice, or the size of your thumb.

I agree with the previous post regarding scales. I don't use the scale as much anymore but initially it helped me alot. Sometimes it was fun to see that a serving was alot more than what I thought (especially if it was something I really like).

Scales are the best bet for this kind of thing really.
Otherwise, look at the packet... if it weighs 5oz, then 1/5 of the pack is 1oz, but you wont be exact without scales.
