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 :)
i used to have a food scale..but it wasn't digital and I just did NOT get it hhehe I don't know..

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.
I am about to cook some rice and need to know what 1/4 cup DRY rice equals when it is cooked? is it 1/2 cup or 3/4 cup or 1 cup? or whatever..what is it? help! i'm bout to put it on the stove :) thanks!
also what does 4 oz of fish look like? is it correct that it looks like a check book?
