Two easy, but maybe not simple ways to keep your eating on track during this holiday season.
1. Track your food. Use my fitness pal, cronometer, fitbit- any of these apps. Logging your food helps you stay accountable.
2. Use hand portions-
These are some quick guides for “eyeballing” your portion sizes using your hand.
Thumb: 1 oz or 2 Tbsp (28-30 grams) – cheese, nuts, mayo, hummus, condiments
Palm of your hand: 3-4 oz (85 grams) – proteins like meat, poultry, and fish
Clenched fist: 1 cup (75 grams) – raw veggies & fruit
Front of your fist: About ½ cup (30 grams) – starchy carbs (pasta, rice, etc.) or cooked veggies
Tip of finger: About 1 tsp – fats, oils, sugars, salad dressing, etc.
