Make it easy and practical for yourself to know when you are eating enough
When it comes to serving yourself up a portion of pasta or rice, this can get very confusing just because they look so different dry v’s cooked.
Easy Serving Guides:
Pasta or rice (aim for wholegrain) 60g uncooked or 150g cooked which is roughly the size of a tennis ball
Meat or chicken (aim for lean varieties) 120g uncooked or 80g cooked which is the equivalent of the size of a deck of cards
Cheese (aim for reduced fat varieties) 30g is the equivalent of the size of a small matchbox
