geerally one once is one normal slice or a quarter cup shredded, or the size of two regular dice.

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.

They are not expensivse and incredibly useful.

Hey everyone!

So I'm confused about serving size for cheese! What exactly does 1 oz of cheese look like?

Is it different for different kinds of cheese: mozzarella, cheddar...etc??

Thanks!
