    Default Good Portions for Meals

    Vegetables and Fruits

    One serving of vegetables equals about a half cup of cooked vegetables or 3/4 cup of vegetable juice. One serving of fruit equals half a cup of berries, a medium apple, or half a grapefruit or mango. Vegetable and fruit servings should be about the size of your fist.


    Carbohydrates


    A half cup of rice, mashed potatoes or pasta is equivalent to one serving -- about the size of a scoop of ice cream. A small baked potato, waffle or slice of bread is also one serving. A serving of cornbread or a roll is the size of a bar of soap.


    Meat, Dairy and Beans

    A serving of meat equals three ounces, which could be a medium pork chop, one chicken breast or 1/4 pound of ground meat -- the size of your palm or a deck of cards. Three ounces of fish is the size of a checkbook. A serving of dairy equals 1-1/2 ounces of cheese or one cup of milk or yogurt. One cup of cooked beans -- a serving -- equals the size of a fist or a tennis ball.


    Snacks, Fats and Oil

    A snack serving equals three or four crackers, a handful of chips or pretzels, one scoop of ice cream or an ounce of chocolate. A serving of butter is the size of a postage stamp but as thick as your finger. A serving of salad dressing equals two tablespoons -- the size of a ping-pong ball.

    Proteins are necessary to build the muscle and maintain them.
    Natural protein foods are better to get rich amount of protein.
    Some good protein foods are eggs, fish, chicken, yogurt, milk, cheese, meat, green vegetables, green beans, and nuts.

    Well , all I can for this post is just great... Carbohydrate foods are often overeaten and most people would benefit by reducing portion sizes,If you are choosing to eat less carbs, it is important to make the carbs you do eat as nutritious as possible.
