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
