No Food Scale? No Problem!

June 19, 2012

Too much of a good thing can be, well, too much.  Too much Pinot... no bueno.  Too much exercise can do more harm than good.  Too much healthy food can make you FAT.  Wait, let me back up a minute.  Eating too much healthy food WILL MAKE YOU FATOrganic isn't synonymous with non-caloric.  If weight loss is your goal, portion control is an absolute necessity.  Portion control is much easier when you prepare everything yourself.  However, that's not realistic for most folks.

Okay, so you're having dinner at a restaurant.  You order grilled chicken over a bed of rice.  How much rice should you eat?  What's a serving look like?

Food = One Serving

  • Rice = Cupcake Wrapper
  • Bread = 1 Slice, the size of a CD case
  • Bagel = half bagel, the size of a hockey puck
  • Pasta = 1 cupped palm
  • Baked Potato = Computer mouse
  • Fruit = 1 piece, the size of a tennis ball
  • Cut up fruit = 7 cotton balls
  • Meat or Chicken = 3 oz, bar of soap
  • Fish = 3 oz, checkbook
  • Cheese = 4 dice
  • Nuts = Egg
  • Peanut Butter = Ping Pong ball
  • Salad Dressing = Shot Glass
  • Fruit Juice = small yogurt container
