I use food service scoops for fast and easy measuring of food. The scoops come in lots of sizes from teaspoons to cup size. I use the teaspoon and 1/2 cup the most. They also are great for baking cookies , cupcakes and pancakes.
There are number on the end of the scoop to tell you how many servings per quart there are.

I tended to under-estimate food portions when I tried to "guess" at a serving. I still measure my cereal, milk & juice each morning. I read packaging for portion sizes, and use the Food Tracker. I use a "fancy china portion plate" I ordered from England for dinner - it has portions beautifully painted on it's face. A nice, elegant feel that makes portion control more fun. I hope to one day be able to "eye ball it" but for now weighing and measuring food at home is helping me alot!
