I bought Ziploc containers in all the right sizes, and those are helping me GREATLY. I also dragged out my kitchen scale, the one I used only for putting up garden produce. Now I weigh more of my portions...sometimes an ounce of whole-grain bread is smaller than a slice of Cuban. And it's easier for me to cook a chicken quarter, then pull off the meat and weigh it; I know exactly how much I'm eating. Yeah, it's some extra work, but my new body will be worth every extra minute.

What an eye-opener (and mouth-closer!)!! I like the definitions of "portion" and "serving" makes it a lot easier to stay on track. Thanks SP!!

I wish the nutrition guidelines we had here had those portions. I have to go back in and re enter 'beans' for example; all they have is 1 cup measurements. And.... a lot of items are listed in grams instead of cups. How many of us have 'grams' measurements handy when we are dishing up our foods?

This article really opened my yeas on portion size. This is a big part of the answer to why so many people are obese.

I've learned so much about my horrible eating habits here. No wonder I was always failing. I was overeating all the time!

I didn't have a clue how big a "portion" was so this article was a must-print for me!

This information is perfect. In fact, I have referred to it so many times I strongly feel it should be accessible as part of the nutritional daily input.
