Portion Sizes

Consuming the correct portion sizes can be difficult when we are constantly being served double, sometimes triple the portion sizes we need. Incorrect portion sizes can lead to increased fat and calorie consumption, a number of health problems and weight gain. Take control of the portions that you are consuming, even when you are eating at a restaurant. Most serving sizes in restaurants are double the amount you should be consuming. Put half of your meal in a box and eat it the next day as another meal or share a meal with a friend. Pay attention to serving sizes and how many serving sizes are in the items you are consuming.
