A Guide for Perfect Portions

by Rachel Baker on August 17, 2013

Figuring out the perfect portion size can be frustrating. Womenshealthmag.com has provided a great guide to make it less of a pain.


There’s a difference between “portion size” and “serving size.” A portion is the amount you pile on your plate, while a serving is a standard measurement of food, such as a cup or an ounce.

The best way to determine the amount of food in a serving is to measure it out. And precision is key: If you eat too little, you could rob your body of the nutrients it needs. And if you eat too much, you could ingest too many calories, and eventually put on weight.
