Do you know how portion size have changed in last 20 years? Average size of food have grown so much that sometimes it is big enough for two or three people..but seems "normal" to us because we are used to it...This ever growing size has led to increased calories, fats and all the other good stuff..
Research shows that people unintentionally consume more calories when faced with larger portions.It is hard to resist juicy steak and cheesy potatoes..or minimize the temptation of second and third helpings when eating at a buffet...This mean significant excess calorie intake,especially when eating high-calorie foods which is one of the reason behind overweight and obesity epidemic!!
Here is the bitter truth on serving size of some food..
The whole idea of this post is NOT to take away food from all of you..we all eat more than 1 servings of ice cream or pasta but I just want to make everyone aware that we are in a society where everything from food to our waist line is SUPER SIZED!!! Since food companies will continue to offer large quantities of cheaper food...All we can do is downsize our servings-See Less Eat Less..
