21 Ways to Measure Perfect and Healthy Portion Sizes

Use this guide to get the food portions right.

A portion is the food quantity you stack on the tray whilst a serving is the standard measure of the food, such as an ounce or a cup. Measuring the quantity of food in a meal is the best way to tell food amount in a serving. And accuracy is crucial: you could extract the nutrients your brain requires if you consume too little. And if you consume too much, you can consume too many calories and weight. That said, it can be a real pain to measure and portion meals. Use this guide to get your portions right to fulfill your targets for weight gain or to balance those numbers on a scale.
