What portion sizes should I eat? A handy guide to portions and building a healthy plate

Questions around portion sizes and building a healthy plate are questions I get asked regularly in clinic and at company talks so I hope you will find the following useful as you choose and prepare meals.

How much we should be eating is very individual, varying from person to person, and depends on many factors including our age, our lifestyle, how hungry we are, what food we are eating, how much exercise we are doing, and how we are feeling, but a good way to guide portions if you are not sure is by using your hands as a guide. I talk through this in this video and you can find the infographic on my website here:
