Choosing a Serving Size

Once you have tapped a food item to view more details, you will see a green measuring bar. You can adjust your serving size by moving this bar until it is at your desired amount.

Similarly, to change the serving unit (for example, from “cups” to “grams”) move the serving scale just beneath.

There are a variety of ways to select and determine portion sizes in Balance. Common measuring containers (cups, mugs, etc.) are an option for things like nuts or grains. For fruits and vegetables, you will find sizes like small, medium and large, as well as parts of the whole, like a slice of avocado or an apple ring. Standard units of measurement for weight and volume are always available. While you’re still getting used to food tracking, measuring and weighing foods will help you develop a feel for portion sizes in the future!
