How much is too much? Restaurant portions and food packaging have grown significantly in recent years, distorting our judgment of appropriate serving sizes. Being faced with larger portions, especially when eating high-calorie foods, can lead to a considerable excess in your daily caloric intake. Avoid common food portion pitfalls by following these tips: • Familiarize yourself with healthy serving sizes. • When serving dinner at home, keep serving dishes off the table. • Instead of eating snacks right from the box, put an appropriate serving size in a bowl and put the box away to avoid "grazing." • Forget about spoiling your dinner. Eating small, healthy snacks throughout the day as you get hungry will help keep you from overeating at mealtimes. • Keep any especially tempting or unhealthy foods out of sight, storing more healthy options in front at eye level. • Slow down! When you eat slowly, your body will be better able to recognize when it is full. This year, pay attention to choosing smaller portion sizes. Making small changes can make a big difference in how you feel and can be a big first step in improving your overall health.
