A Plateful of Pasta The recommended serving size on the box for pasta is 2 ounces, which is 1/2 cup cooked. The typical restaurant portion is easily four times this size. Leave just one cup on the plate (or take home leftovers).
Note: One cup cooked pasta is about the size of a tennis ball.
Resize Your Cereal The amount of cereal eaten by adults is often twice the serving size listed on the box. Check the amount you're pouring in relation to the serving size noted on the box.
Less Bread Use only one slice on your sandwich. Replace the top layer of bread with lettuce.
Less Spread Reduce the amount of butter you use by one tablespoon (and don't replace it with the latest restaurant trend: dipping bread in olive oil).
* Replace two glasses of orange juice (8 ounces each) with two oranges. * Replace two slices of bread with two rice cakes. * Replace two fried chicken breasts with two broiled chicken breasts. * Replace two cups of cooked carrots with two cups of cooked cauliflower.
