You have the perfect measuring tool that is with you no matter where you go…your hand.
The first measurement uses your palm. This is the portion size for your protein. Look at the diameter of your palm and the thickness of your palm. Ladies get to eat one palm size of protein while gentlemen get to enjoy 2 palms of protein. This is simply the way our bodies are designed.
The second measurement uses your fist. This is the portion size for your vegetables. Again, ladies get to eat one fist and gentlemen you get to eat 2 fists.
The third measurement uses your cupped hand. This is for your fruits or other healthy carbohydrates. And yes, ladies get to eat one cupped handful and gentlemen you get to eat 2 cupped handfuls.
The final measurement uses your thumb. This is the portion size for fats. Once again, ladies get to eat one thumb size and gentlemen you get to eat 2 thumb sizes.
So next time you are at a restaurant or eating at home, size your food up by using the parts of your hands to measure the your portions.
