What size is your protein serving of cottage-cheese?

  • What exactly is a palm sized serving of cottage-cheese?! Doesn't it depend how thin your layer of cheese is on your palm???? 

    I usually eat between 1/2 a cup and 1/3 cup for my protein serving. What about everyone else...and any thoughts on the above...!

  • I'm 6'4", so my palm is pretty large.  I try to invision a "patty" of cottage the size of my palm, and it seems to me like it would about fill a 1-cup measuring cup.  So, I go with a cup.  Palm sizes very, so do your best.  I would guess most people would be around 2/3 - 1 cup.  I may even be selling myself short at a cup, but it's hard to tell.

  • Thanks Dave, that  makes A LOT of sense to envision a patty... I think mine would be around 1/2 a cup but not less, and I'm 5'8.

  • I usually base my servings of both yogurt and cottage cheese by the protein grams.  I shoot for 20-25 grams per serving.  I'm 5'8" 165# 18% bodyfat.

  • Thanks BFLchamp, 24g of protein is one cup of cottage cheese....
