I think 3 oz cooked is supposed to be about the size of a deck of cards ?

This is a great question!• I was told 3oz is the size of your hand but I'm not too sure. I know ppl on here have scales which helps a lot.

I always round  up a little bit on my calories for my chicken so I'll know that I'm not over my calories, but I have heard that about the deck of cards or the palm of your hand.

It's a deck of playing cards.  I use my scale though and portion out all my chicken to 3oz and freeze a couple at a time for everyone in the house.  I'm saving so much money by having them portioned.

I agree.  It's so worth it to have one around.  I don't weigh everything, but I do weigh cereals and meats and cheeses (the higher cal stuff).  I usually eyeball fruits and veggies because those aren't so detrimental to my day, lol.
