Healthy eating doesn’t have to be a science. Here is a guide for appropriate portion sizes and more intuitive eating habits:
- Eat a palm-sized serving of protein-rich foods (meat, eggs, dairy products, legumes, etc.) and a fist-sized serving of vegetables at each meal.
- Add a thumb-sized serving of fatty foods (like butter, oil, and nuts).
- A cupped handful of carbohydrates (pasta, rice, fruit) are ideal as a supplement.
These figures apply to women, for men it is double the amount.
Of course, you can adapt the composition to your diet (e.g. Low Carb) and needs.
