    I am also grateful for this article. I also printed it and posted it on the frig. I do wish though that there was a place for salad portion. Maybe I am just missing on how to use the chart. - 4/3/2008 1:11:50 PM

    Portion control is what I have to watch all the time. If I don't, the servings slowly become a little bigger, and a little bigger! My husband and I had a 1/2 cp. portion of sugar free ice cream the other night. His bowl was 3 times the size of mine. I ask him if he measured his bowl, he grinned and said yes... He piled his serving up in the measuring cup! Ack!! My eyes are bigger then my tummy, and it may always be that way. So I measure. - 3/18/2008 5:27:26 PM
  • Hmm, helpful. I'm going to try to each serving size of food into my nutrition tracker to help myself get into the habit of thinking of food in serving sizes. - 3/17/2008 2:21:18 PM
  • I was JUST discussing this with my husband. How timely! He was concerned about all the recommended servings of fruits, veggies, carbs, etc and this explains how a serving is very different than a portion. GREAT article! Very needed- - 3/9/2008 4:46:06 PM
