The Basics of Portion Sizing

You don’t need to count calories to get the right portions for your goals. Instead, just use your hand to measure. This keeps meal times simple and easy.

As you go through your coaching program, you’ll be immediately set up with a Nutrition guide specific to you with easy to follow portion sizes.  You’ll learn more about specific foods, nutrients, and how much as we go through the program. For now, just get the general idea.

A portion of protein = 1 palm

A portion of vegetables = 1 fist

A portion of carbs = 1 cupped hand

A portion of fats = 1 thumb
