How about a straight-up conversation with him about it?
"I love your cooking, but I have no idea how to track it. I'm sad that I end up taking such a really small portion so I'd like to be able to track it accurately to see if I can have more. Can you please work with me to figure out how we can do this?"
My partner and I talked about it, and the simple solution that we came up with is that he cooks the same as I do. We keep a note-pad and pen beside the kitchen scale, a big bowl there, and we throw whatever we've just cut up in to the bowl to weigh it, note it on the pad, and then throw it in the pot. While it's cooking, I enter it on to SparkRecipes and figure out what will be my serving size, and put it in the tracker.
If he's cooking at his place, then you'd have to invest in another kitchen scale for there, or you'll have to remember to bring yours, but it's well worth it to be able to enjoy his cooking without the angst!
The best way to get your partner to support your goals is to tell him straight-up what he can do to help you.

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
