Are your portions out of control?

Do you know how much you should be eating at one time? Do you know how much food you get on average when you go out and eat? Most people don’t, and that’s a more detrimental impact on your weight loss goals than what you actually eat!

For example, 2oz of pasta is a normal portion size. When you go to an Italian restaurant you usually get about 16oz! That’s almost 2000 calories of just pasta! Cereal is another great example. Most cereal portions are 3/4 cups to 1 cup. But your average bowl runs 2 cups! Sitting down for that late night snack of Cocoa Puffs could be adding almost 600 calories to your daily intake!

For some great examples on how to maintain your portions, check out today’s video. I give some real world examples from my kitchen. Enjoy!

And as always, please leave some feedback for me đŸ™‚
