Serving sizes have grown so much in recent years that we barely remember what an average portion is supposed to look like. When restaurants offer us tremendous amounts of food, it's difficult to put down the fork and say "done," even after you're full. Overeating can sabotage your goals of reaching or maintaining a healthy weight, so here's a visual guideline from ABC showing how big the portion sizes on your plate should be.
|3 oz. of meat||Deck of cards|
|Baked potato||Computer mouse|
|Potato chips, pretzels, popcorn||Teacup|
|1 oz. of cheese||Roll of film|
