What are the right portion sizes if I am trying to eat low-carb?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

You can use your hands to measure the right portion size:
  • Carbs = Fist. A serving of carbs should be about the size of your fist.
  • Protein = Palm. A serving of meat, poultry or fish should be about the size of your palm.
  • Fats = Thumb. A serving of fats should be about the size of your thumb.
  • Fruits and Veggies = Handfuls. For fruits and veggies, grab all you can hold!
