Handy Portion Guide

Handy Portion Guide

Your hands can tell you alot of useful information about portion sizes with food.

Carbohydrates: The amount you should eat would equal the size of your two fists closed. If eating fruits, reduce this to one fist.

Protein: The amount should equal the size of the palm of your hand and the thickness of your little finger.

Vegetables: Eat as much vegetables as you can fit in both of your hands. Choose low-carbohydrate vegetables like broccoli or lettuce.

Fat: No more fat than the size of your thumb should be taken.

Just remember, as exercise and activity increases, your portion sizes may also need to increase. Consult a Dietitian for further consultation.
