Portion Control

  • Keeping track of portion sizes helps manage your calorie intake which is a must for effective weight management.
  • The amount of food you choose for a meal may actually be larger or smaller than what is considered to be a one serving or portion.
  • For example, one serving of dry cereal is equal to 1 cup which should look like the size of your fist.
  • For examples of other recommended serving sizes, check out NHLBI serving cards at http://hp2010.nhlbihin.net/portion/servingcard7.pdf
