5 bite diet TIPS part 4 : How big is a bite?

1 snicker bar = 5 bites

1 snicker bar =  about  ⅓ cup

1 bite =  1 Tablespoon

5 bites =  ⅓ cup

8 bites = ½ cup

10 bites = ⅔ cup

16 bites = 1 cup

What about food like sandwiches that I bite off?
Everyone’s bite size is a little different.

Dr. Lewis considers ½ of a sandwich = 10 bites
(not the little McDonald's sandwiches)

Another option to measure “bites” that some people use is:
(Dr. Lewis does not go by calories, but some people use this variation)

5 bites = 250 calories

For example:

1 Lean pocket = 5 bites (250 calories or so)
1 protein bar = 5 bites (around 250 calories)
1 smoothie = 5 bites (around 250 calories)
Healthy choice/Lean Cuisine/Trader joes meals that are 250 calories = 5 bites

  3. Very good! Thanks. If there is anyone who would like to calculate nutrients, there is an easy nutrition calculator: It can really help people count actual protein, sugars, fats, vitamins and minerals of their favorite food. I know that often it is wise to know what is the nutrient content of real, natural foods to avoid synthetic supplements because we don't need them. Consumption of natural food is the the only smart way to stay healthy.
