this frustrates me though, because if the vast majority of items are packaged a certain way - say, 1/4lb of meat - doesn't it make more sense to adjust the overall ratio, rather than force a rather arbitrary "suggested serving size"? just seems like it'd be easier than going against the grain of society. if a "typical" serving of meat is 4oz, tell us how many 4oz servings we should be getting.

I am a constant label reader, eat mostly at home. so I rarely need to remember these rules so I only got 8/16. I tried to visualize what I have been serving myself. As a diabetic, I never have been able to eat more than 2 servings of fruit, so the rule related to fruit - doesn't apply - of the question had referred to banans I would have know that 1/2 is a serving - I haven't had a banana in 10 years. Yesterday I read that you could freeze bananas in 1inch pieces for smoothie's - I can't wait to go shopping and truly enjoy a favorite! Another surprise was cheese. I buy swiss cheese that is 8 oz and when I store it I cut it into 8 pieces - I think those pieces look more like a tea bag than 2 dices.

I knew most of them, I got a few wrong relating to meat and dairy since I'm a vegetarian and don't often consume dairy (I get my calcium from leafy greens and soymilk). That said, a lot of what I knew was accurate.

A lot of the ones I missed I actually under guessed portion sizes!!! CLEARLY My bad food vision is even more messed up!!

I thought I would do better than 11 of 16, But even for the ones I know - knowing and doing are not the same. I am learning the sizes and now need to practice the portion control.
