good cause I ended up eating 1/2 cup of rice. I think I did good on the fish.. I googled it and it said a check book.. now I'm remembering that when I did weight watchers.. I remember a check book being mentioned hehe.. I also feel satisfied and have some calories left over..so I'm not gonna worry now :)

1/4 cup dry rice when cooked will end up being about double, so about 1/2 cup. Not super sure about the 4oz of fish. I know that 3oz of chicken is a little bigger than a deck of cards. Or about 1/2 the size of my hand. Not including fingers, and I have really tiny hands. Hope that helped, enjoy your dinner!

Depends on the type of rice. Your best bet is to measure your serving after it's cooked in a measuring cup.

Also, I would recommend a food scale. It's helped me understand how much I'm actually eating and now I use it for every meal I cook. You can get them starting around $10 and they go up from there. One with ounces and grams would be your best bet.
