The Portion Distortion Guide

A List of Serving Sizes


  • This really helps - I had it pretty wrong - I really hate weighing and measuring food and you can't do that when you are on the go - Thank you for this - it's going on the fridge - 6/2/2008 3:29:57 PM
  • well part of it is that "normal" portions are far too big. - 5/27/2008 5:28:07 PM
  • Looking at nutrition labels on packages, I think some "serving sizes" are based on numbers not reality. Reduce the size of a "serving" and the amount of fat goes down. But, what is "normal" use is a much larger portion. I think there's a numbers game afoot. - 5/9/2008 6:33:31 PM
  • I've bookmarked this--I used to have actual pictures to show what the correct portions looked like, but this is really good. Thanks for the help.

    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
