Okay, so I scored 14 out of 16. Now it is time to for me to put my knowledge of portion control into practice more consistently.

10/16
Are the fruit and vegetables 2-5 or 5-9 servings per day?I think I got all mixed up!
And the Diary? 1-2 or 3-4, and not 2-3? Now Im more confused!!!

The main problem I see is confusing SERVING size with PORTION size.
People trying to lose weight often try to eat one SERVING of grains for one meal which is ridiculously small.
Who would be satisfied with half cup of cooked grains for lunch or dinner?
One who tries will be hungry and dissatisfied and desperate.

For 1600 calories one should have 6 servings of grains per day, that is, in case of 3 meals - 2 portions per meal.
Sounds better, doesn't it?
If you eat only 3 servings per day, that would be 800 calories if diet is balanced.

I should have waited to take the quiz when I could have a label with me.

I don't consume any animal products at all, I don't eat large portions of anything, apart from vegetables (and even then, we're not talking supersized platefuls), and my result was that I have portion distortion... but the answers I chose were smaller than the allegedly correct ones!
