I'm struggling a bit with portion size. This week is a crazy week, so I'm trying to be really simple with my meals. My first meal is 3/4 cup egg beaters and some kind of fruit. But i'm struggling with how much fruit - 1/2 cup or 1 cup. I'm horrible using the fist as a measurement. My next meal is cottage cheese and yogurt. Should I be eating 1/2 cup or 1 cup of cottage cheese?
I'm afraid I won't be getting enough protein if I don't figure this out. Can anyone help?
usually a fist size portion is just about a cup. I wasnt too sure at first either (week 14 for me..C2 yay) and it worked wonderfully.
Almost never ate cottage cheese but when I did/do i go with half a cup thats all i can tolerate and I have to blend it smooth and mix it in the yogurt..doesnt taste too bad this way plus ill add Twin Lab Vanilla powder (usually mixes easy with anything i need to mix it in..oatmeal, drinks, yogurt, pancakes etc) this ups the protein factor of most my meals
Hope this helps :)
