The Portion Distortion Guide

A List of Serving Sizes

I find it interesting that the packaging on my bread says a serving is 2 slices not one. Also, as someone who lives in a country that measures in metric I find picturing oz confusing especially since the size of the portion depends on the density of the food. This chart will help a little, but I’m sure I’ll still have to convert everything to grams to really be able to visualize it

I struggle with portion control even though I know what they are.

Thanks for the potentially great info. However as someone counting carbs (not calories) for diabetic blood sugar control I find the site very very difficult and very trying to use. The serving size is not shown in grams or ounces so referring back and searching is often impossible timewise, especially when you have a lot of ingredients in a meal. Why not adopt the format “per 30, 50 or 100g serving” as appropriate?

Measuring is the only way to be sure of portion size.
