4 Ounces is the perfect portion for a burger.....

There are 58 calories in 1 ounce of Meat Loaf (97% lean ground beef)
Jennie O Ground Turkey 99% Fat Free ...4 ounces is only 120 Calories...add Kitchen Bouquet seasoning sauce and I find it tastes even better than ground beef..

Maybe try...
Portabella Burger
SAUTE Mushroom cap 3 minutes with cavity side down
turn over and stuff with Shredded Mozzarella
Chopped tomato
1 clove of minced garlic
chopped red onion
Cover and saute another 3 minutes
Top with Kraft Horseradish Sauce 1 tbsp.
Serve on Rye bread toasted

Here are some other way to help with portion control

48 calories in 1 ounce of lean roast beef ( 3 slices of deli beef 150 calories)
Lamb 3 ounces 237 calories
lean pork chop 172 calories
Canadian Bacon 33 calories per slice
There are 35 calories in 1 ounce of boneless Chicken Breast.
Approx 38 calories in each 1 oz of turkey breast, skin removed
Look for low-fat cheeses, but be aware of higher sodium content in some reduced-fat varieties
Opt for low-sodium deli meats such as reduced-sodium turkey breast, or use leftover cooked chicken or turkey you've prepared from scratch with minimal salt


Add non~starchy vegetables, such as cucumber slices, shredded carrot, lettuce, and tomato slices to salads and sandwiches. Use rye bread and toast it...rye digest slowly and keeps you full....Opt for low-fat condiments such as mustard, low-fat salad dressing, low-fat mayonnaise, and vinegar. Add a source of lean protein, such as grilled chicken, canned tuna (packed in water, not tuna salad), or drained beans, to help you feel full. Use only a small number of croutons or skip them altogether. Top with more non~starchy veggies, such as tomatoes, broccoli, cucumbers, and onions


A deck of cards is about the size of a 3-4 ounce portion of meat, fish, poultry, or 1/2 cup of starch.... such as rice or cut-up fruit.
A baseball or tennis ball is the size of a piece of fruit about 80 calories
The size of an Apricot or plum around 40-60 calories
The palm of an average woman's hand equals about 4 ounces or 1/2 cup.
A fist equals about 1 cup.
A thumb is about 1 tablespoon.
The tip of the thumb to the first knuckle is about 1 teaspoon.
Pasta, the size of a quarter, raw is 200 calories, the size of a light bulb cooked...add broccoli or green beans to make the meal more dense.

Words like "juice drink" or "juice cocktail" are a huge dose of sugar water. Need juice... get Ocean Spray DIET Cranberry which has only 3 sugars ...mix 1/2 cran with 1/2 water or get Traders Joe's Kettle Brewed Black Tea which has no sugar no artificial sweeteners.
