The Portion Distortion Guide

A List of Serving Sizes


  • 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!! - 12/12/2008 5:01:59 PM
  • 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? - 12/3/2008 9:34:10 AM
    This article really opened my yeas on portion size. This is a big part of the answer to why so many people are obese. - 11/30/2008 4:07:48 PM
  • I've learned so much about my horrible eating habits here. No wonder I was always failing. I was overeating all the time! - 10/28/2008 10:09:37 AM
  • I didn't have a clue how big a "portion" was so this article was a must-print for me! - 10/27/2008 8:30:13 PM

  • I just love this website. It is loaded with so much useful information. I was looking for something I could print out to educate me about portion sizes and voila I get this fantastic article! Sparkpeople is really the best!! - 8/22/2008 9:21:00 AM
    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. - 8/4/2008 7:54:20 PM

  • Hi Its no wonder I gained all my weight .Now I see were I have been going wrong.Thanks SP - 7/28/2008 3:26:39 PM
  • I realized by tracking exactly that I have been deluding myself. When I track my food exactly, I lose weight. Yeah! - 7/12/2008 12:19:17 PM
  • HI ,
    I also just started stage 2. No wonder we all gain weight, as we have no control how much we eat. I now see that QUANTITY mostly is the main reason fro gaining weight and What you eat comes second.
    But it deos seem a little scary, especially with the cheese, wow ho wi love it the most!!!!!
