I eat b/s chicken thighs a LOT, and they are 3-4 ozs each. Not a lot of meat, which is why we tend to underestimate meat consumption.
When I was seeing a dietitian, she told me about the rule of a serving was " the size of your fist ". So I showed her my fist, and she said.. " Well, maybe MY fist "..lol.
I buy packages of meat, and divide them when I get home. They have the weight listed on them. So if the package is 1.44 lbs, and there are 6 chicken thighs, I know each is roughly 4 ozs.( 3.84 ). If I buy a package of ground beef that is 1.14 lbs, I can split it into six 3 oz portions, and freeze them. This saves me from having to weigh portions, and is still pretty close.
