I've been doing this for over 2 years and I still have to measure and weigh. I'm afraid to guess

Would love to see a printable list. I am horrible at the guessing game.

Am terrible at guessing. Turned out what I thought was the baseball guide is a softball and soooooo different in size. No wonder I was off. Guess will keep a measure spoon and 1/2 cup one in my purse!

Portion control really helped me loose weight and eat better.

It takes time, but worth learning about better portions.

Is there a printable list? This is great and I am guilty of portion distortion.

This is one of the best categorized food portion control charts I've seen. Thank you!

I find that I suffer from portion distprtion. Question: is a billiard ball the same size as an ice cream scoop? NO ONE SERVES JUICE IN CUPS SHAPED LIKE HOCKEY PUCKS. I guess I will have to compare a billiard ball to a scoop. I am trying to visualize a pat of butter compared to a throwing die ... only the deck of cards analogy works for me.

This was a huge issue for me. I was eating healthy foods, but in very unhealthy portions. I now have a much better idea of what a healthy portion looks like!
