This article is just what I have been looking for. I have made 3 copies one for at home, one for the car, and one for work. No guessing anymore.

I thought this article was very helpful and I printed out the chart. To me, the point is, to think smaller when it comes to eating healthy-sized portions. Make a fist-----that is about the size of your stomach. Seeing this visual can help in realising we don't need the mountain of food most restaurants serve.

The 'That's About the Size of' is VERY helpful! Thoroughly enjoyed the article!

I have to agree these are strange measurings, however, I think we get the point and I will be working on these.

very interesting! though I have to agree with the comments regarding some of the visual aids. I am not sure how to compare fruit juice and hockey put... As DJHIXSON said, using something familiar (and that you always have with you) like the palm of your hand, and so on would be most useful.

After reading this article, I realized,the safest thing for me to do is buy some measuring equipment and a scale. I also want to buy one of those 'salad plates'. Then just one serving per plate.

I was surprised at how "off" some of my portions are.

great article! half cup portions are easy to understand and make it obvious how to accomplish 5 to 7 smaller meals per day.
