Understanding portion sizes better: When you do your research about dieting and read about controlling the amount of food you intake, you may not have an idea, when it comes to the right portion size. In relation to that, you can actually use your fist as your reference for it. Thus, whenever you try to fill up your plate with food, make sure that it does not go beyond the size of your fist.
