Conversion Table For Measuring Portion Sizes

Measuring portions is an essential element of my eating plan, and the one I’ve taught the Biggest Loser contestants for the past 15 seasons.

It’s important to be precise about amounts when food journaling. Serving size recommendations don’t always come in the measures with which we are most familiar, and if you don’t spend much time in the kitchen, you might be completely lost.  Please use the table below for reference whenever and wherever you are:
