Eating out is always a treat. More recently restaurants are even expanding menus to include healthier options. However, the portions are often excessive. In fact, the following from care2.com discusses how portion sizes have increased dramatically over the past 60 years. What can you do about it? Remember, the size of your fist is the size of your stomach. Next time you go out to eat, count how many fists worth of food are actually put in front of you. Ask your server, before receiving your meal, to pack up half in a take out container and eat the half that is given to you to help control the size of your portion. You’ll be doing your body a favour and you’ll have tasty leftovers for the next day!
