Portion Sizes

When It Comes to Portions, Which Would You Rather Eat?

Whether you're trying to drop pounds or maintain your current weight, eating appropriate portion sizes is key. The only problem is, not all foods are created equally. Five large carrots offer 150 calories, but one little ounce of almonds (about 24) offers about the same amount, 164 calories. With high-calorie foods, even if they're healthy, portion sizes have to decrease dramatically or else the scale will definitely let you know you overdid it.

Although I do crave higher calorie foods such as nuts, cheese, and bread, eating small portions doesn't satisfy my hunger (even though I'm getting enough calories). I'd much rather eat large portions of low-calorie foods such as fruits, veggies, nonfat yogurt, and lean proteins. What about you?
