Using Hand to Estimate the Portion

Using Hand to Estimate the Portion

When you decide to go on a diet, you look every piece and slice of food as a calory source. And you may search on internet how much calory it provides. But usually calorie values are written for spesific measures like a cup of coffee, a bowl of tomato soap, a teaspoon of honey etc. Well… What size is a bowl or cup? After all there are various sizes for those things.

In this post we’ll show you how to use your hand in order to estimate how much you eat in “calory terms”:

1 cup = your fist

Using Hand in order to Estimate the Portion
1 ounce = the meaty part of your thumb

Using Hand in order to Estimate the Portion
1 tablespoon = your thumb, minus the meaty part

Using Hand in order to Estimate the Portion
1 teaspoon = the tip of your index finger

Using Hand in order to Estimate the Portion
1 inch = the middle section of your index finger

Using Hand in order to Estimate the Portion
1-2 ounces of a food like nuts or pretzels = your cupped hand

Using Hand in order to Estimate the Portion
3 ounces of meat, fish, or poultry = the palm of your hand

Again, these values represent estimated measures. Their accuracy will vary just like the size of hands.
