The 'That's About the Size of' is VERY helpful! Thoroughly enjoyed the article! Report
I have to agree these are strange measurings, however, I think we get the point and I will be working on these. Report
very interesting! though I have to agree with the comments regarding some of the visual aids. I am not sure how to compare fruit juice and hockey put... As DJHIXSON said, using something familiar (and that you always have with you) like the palm of your hand, and so on would be most useful. Report
After reading this article, I realized,the safest thing for me to do is buy some measuring equipment and a scale. I also want to buy one of those 'salad plates'. Then just one serving per plate. Report
Hockey pucks and billiard balls??? Measurement comparisons are ridiculous!! Gotta be a better way. Are not the same amts as one serving amts on product containers are either. Report
great! thanks Report
I was surprised at how "off" some of my portions are. Report
great article! half cup portions are easy to understand and make it obvious how to accomplish 5 to 7 smaller meals per day. Report
great article! Report
This is awesome! Little things make a big difference! Report
Oh wow, I had no idea. Well there's my answer to why I'm not losing weight! Report
Each time I get confused about how much is a serving on the pyramid foods...this article reminds me and keeps me on my toes!!!

Thanks SPARK!!! Report
Love this, thank you! Report
I think this is very helpful - except the hocky puck bit....what size is a hocky pu? perhaps cup or similar would work better but other visuals are excellent, thanks Report
I'm not sure how you can indicate a liquid to be about the size of a hockey puck, I mean how can you mentally put those two items together and say "oh ok... this glass of juice is the same size as a hockey puck"
