This is really a big help. Still, I can't imagine only eating 3-4 little dice size cubes of cheese,lol. Gotta watch those portions sizes! I agree with the problems of the nutrition labels being based on a 2,000 calorie diet. How do we adjust this to out calorie allowances? I'm going to post this question and see what happens. Di
Great article. I am printing it off and will carry it with me and put it up in my kitchen. I need to have it on hand when I make meals for me and for my family. I've been eating enough for my entire family..OMG.
I had no idea what a real portion is . OMG.. I thought I did.. I was way off !! I have printed this up and I am going to really study it. Thank you for this article !!

I thought I was hungry because I was not eating enough... I am hungry because my portion sizes were way "out to lunch" and not in a good way...LOL ... I will be printing this out to help me portion control my food.. Thanks
I'm a doof when it comes to math, so for my goals (not over 1500 cal at the moment) I'm a bit lost when looking at those 2000 cal guidelines! Hopefully going by actual size will help me make some better decisions. Here's to stage 2!
