  • I found this useful, but would appreciate an example under 'dairy' for products high in calcium that aren't dairy. Which sounds odd. Maybe the 'dairy' category could become the 'high-in-calcium' category? This would be really helpful for those of us who are either allergic to dairy or lactose intolerant. I find it difficult to get enough calcium daily, even with a supplement. - 2/21/2011 12:23:13 PM

    Love this article. What a great resource! - 1/17/2011 2:26:38 PM
  • It really helped me to equate portion sizes to an everyday item. Who hasn't rolled dice on a board game or played a game of cards? Gets me real close to a proper portion size without having to carry a scale around with me ; ) Especially with cheese. I love it but this reminds me to enjoy it more as a treat rather than a meal. Enables you to make smarter choices. 15lbs and going ! Yahhoooo : ) - 1/16/2011 8:11:38 AM

    I have printed the article to keep in the kitchen. It will remind to size up my food and stick with the plan! - 1/15/2011 9:50:35 PM
  • I have to admit that the portion sizes don't look like much but once you get all your daily requirements for the day it actually adds up. Glad to have this article to refer to ;) - 1/11/2011 4:24:14 PM

    Not quite sure i get the portion size advice, if we are required to eat 6-11 servings of grains a day etc and the article says a serving of bread is is 1 small slice, does that mean we can eat 6-11 slices of bread a day?

    I am confused..:-( - 12/30/2010 4:10:20 PM

    I've been wondering how to measure my freggies (fruits & veggies) for a while now and a SparkFriend pointed me in the direction of this article. I've actually been eating more than my goal of 5 freggies a day! Wow!! This is a great reminder of how to keep things in check! - 12/28/2010 8:36:17 AM
  • No wonder I have to lose weight! Those portions are smaller than what I ate as an infant! LOL! In fact, I do not think I have ever seen anybody eat such small portions in my entire life! - 12/9/2010 2:53:20 PM
  • And all this time I thought I was eating an ounce of mixed nuts. I was really eating 4oz- A difference of 300+ calories. Wow! - 12/9/2010 12:59:49 PM
