do you guys just guesstimate how much food u ate

Well, I do to an extent. I know that my glasses filled almost to the brim are exactly 1.5 cups, and I know my bowls filled up to a certain design on it is 2 cups.
Usually once you measure once you can tell everytime how much it is, and seeing as I eat basically the same things everyday it works for me. Therefore I would say measure the first time, and then just estimate based on those measurements.
If you do have lots of time though, measuring everytime is certainly optimal.

I measure everything I eat. I made that a habit long ago.

if your not gonna be accurate then why bother?
guesstimating with portion sizes is one thing, guesstimating content of food you haven't prepared is impossible
What kitchen skales do you guys use and where did you get them. I am in desperate need of one.

Yeah, what Ryuage said, and while you're at it, get a set of plastic measuring cups for like $0.99. After a short while though, you get pretty good at eyeballing some things. I cook 6-8 chicken breasts at a time, and I can go in the fridge right now, and rip off a hunk, weigh it, and it'll be 3.5 oz (or whatever sized portion I want).
