I can help with some general guidelines for eyeballing portion size.
*Your closed fist is about the size of a cup (i.e. pasta such as macaroni, popcorn, etc.)
*Your thumb, tip to base, is approximately the size of an ounce of cheese or meat.
*Your thumb, tip to first joint, is about a tablespoon.
*Your pointy finger, tip to first joint, is around the size of a teaspoon,
*Your cupped hand is around 1-2oz of nuts or pretzels
*Your palm (minus your fingers) is approximately the size of 3 oz of meat, fish, or poultry.
It also helps to measure for the first while and, eventually, you'll get used to it. Better to measure then to guess and over/under estimate.
