Portion size according to your palm!! Hold your palm out... Your protein should cover the palm of your hand. Hold two palms out, each meal should have a mix of fruits and veggies to fill both hands cupped. Hold out one hand, starchy carbs should fill 1 hand. This is the easiest way and best way to portion out your food for fat loss.

Another tip... only two- three meals a day should contain starchy carbs such as brown rice, whole grain toast, oatmeal, sweet potato, banana. Try to keep the meals with starchy carbs around your scheduled workout. The rest of your meals should be a lean protein such as fish, chicken and lean steak, and your portion of veggies and fruits. Your fruits should be non starchy. If you have more questions on this please don't hesitate with ask.
