How to eye ball food

Any suggestions on how to eye ball the amount of food to eat? I don't have a scale to get the exact amount of chicken. Whats a good way to guess?

Jeryd, get a scale, period. A basic model is about 6 bucks at Wally World. Guessing on food size, will provide a guess on your calorie intake, so why bother. Now once you've been weighing and meauring for awhile, then you'll have a pretty good idea of what 4oz of steak or 1 cup of veggies look likes. But at this point in the game, weigh/measure your food.

I concur, you need to weigh everything then you might be able to eye ball after that
