Use your hands

Our hands are usually in proportion with the rest of our body but if you know you have ginormous or teeny hands in relation to your size then you may need to use our usual weighing methods!

We have a new handy graphic coming soon which will tell you all your daily and weekly hand-related food allowances along with other detail.

Here’s an example:

Main meal

Protein: 1 palm-sized piece of meat or chicken/1 hand sized piece of fish/level cupped hands of eggs, beans or lentils

Starchy carbohydrate: 1 fist size

Vegetables or salad: 2 heaped cupped hands
