If you don't have a food scale? I plan on getting one soon, but until then I was wondering if there was another way to measure.

Dunno actually. I buy a london broil and cut it into 4 steaks. Have half a chicken breast.. not sure how many oz that really is but it works.

I estimate. I look at the total weight of the package I buy and then kinda try to eat a certain portion if it. So if the package of chicken is right at a pound, ill eat 1/4 to 1/3 of the package...so 4-6 oz.

same here for the most part

though some things I DO weigh- like if I'm putting meat on my burrito or something-I'll weigh it

That's what I usually do too. I just wasn't sure if there was another way or if I was the only one doing it that way.

A 3 oz piece of chicken is about the size of the palm of your hand.

Same here, I've always heard the size of your fist is your meat portion size.
