Many people usually start on our hand-eye method nutrition plan. There’s a lot of questions such as “How accurate is it?” “Am I doing it correctly?” and “Why am I using my hand to measure?”

Our hands are generally portioned to our bodies and are always the same size, which makes them the best tools to measure our food. They are with you everywhere you go, so you don’t have to have a food scale or measuring cup with you 24/7. 

Hand eye method is 95% accurate as weighing, measuring and tracking your food. 

Hand portions aren’t as accurate as macro tracking. But they are accurate enough to help you constantly track your food intake and reach your goals.
