How to eyeball proper serving sizes

This Week's Tip

How to eyeball proper serving sizes
When you're diagnosed with diabetes, you quickly learn that it's essential to overhaul your diet. Suddenly you're counting not just calories but carbs, and trying to cut back on both for blood sugar control and weight loss. Reading labels becomes second nature, as does the ability to quickly decipher how many servings of carbohydrates a food really contains.

But how do you translate those skills to the real world when you're eating at a party, a restaurant, or other setting where food labels and measuring cups aren't available? You learn to accurately eyeball your portions. This guide to portion control will help you determine how many servings of carbs, fat, protein and calories are in the foods you eat away from home.
