I went to breakfast with my husband today. I really wanted whole wheat pancakes. I had been craving them all week, but the place where we went to get them had removed them from the menu. I was stuck getting buttermilk pancakes. They served me three, giant buttermilk pancakes. I sat there and stared at them, thinking to myself, "What in the heck am I going to do now?"
I ate half of them. One and a half pancakes later, I was full. My husband ate the other half...after eating his food.
My mother complained for years that I never ate all of any meal I was served. BUT I was thin when I didn't eat ALL of my American-styled portions. So, I figure the best thing to do is be aware that the servings here in the US are out of control. Do I wish the serving sizes would change? Absolutely...but that won't happen while Americans maintain their "bigger is better" philosophy.
