  • I've noticed several recipes that call for 1 oz. of pasta. Is that 1/2 cup or less?
  • This article was just what I needed to learn for today. Portion control has always been a problem. I get hungry and then want to eat until I am full. I do better when I eat less but I cannot seem to know by instinct what is enough! I printed out the article and plan to cut out the charts and post to refrigerator since I seem to have a relationship with my refrigerator on a daily basis (lol). Thank you Coach Nicole for all your help in Portion Control. Will study and use.
  • I like the sizing examples, but I find the scale works best for me. However, I DO try to remember those sizing examples when I eat out!
  • So how many servings in a cantaloupe?
  • I struggle with portions and love SPs real life examples. A baseball is a better visual then a weight on a scale for me.

    I am doing much better now I am using a scale
  • I use measuring devices all the time including a scale or I would definitely under estimate the oz and TB or tsp of what I am using.
  • Great information! I definitely have portion distortion. A deck of cards for meat?(yikkes) I will be much more mindful on my portion size, I wonder if a food scale would help? Have a great da,y Sparkers!
  • I have to use the measuring devices otherwise I either over estimate on some foods and underestimate on others.
  • I struggle with this... sometimes it is hard to decipher how much are things that I eat.
  • Any tabletop gamer would have problems with "one dice" or "two dice," as we've got dice in every size, shape, and material (and Crown Royal bags are excellent for carrying them).
  • Portion size makes a big difference. When I started measuring my portions, I realized how much I was over eating. I also feel satisfied and not hugry fast when I eat a wholesome meal.
  • I bought a few measuring cups at Dollar Tree, and now I have no excuse not to measure out my foods. They only cost a dollar and I can leave them in cereal say so I don't have to hunt down the right measurement.
  • Thank you for guiding us how to measure the portion which is very much help full to learn how much we required as a portion to help in weight lose. Regards. Zeba Rashid
  • I think the grains and freggies should be switched- or actually even less grains an dunlimited veggies- meaning I don't need to cut back on vegetables!
