Portion Control

As I was pour a bowl of cereal last week, I was thinking about how much I've learned about portion control. Lots of my nutrition classes talked about making sure you dish up was a portion is. 1 serving of cereal is 3/4 c to 1c, do you actually know how much that is? Measure it!

this chart will help you recognize how much you really should be eating. Chances are you'll be just as full if you eat the correct serving and eat slower, as you would with a big helping.

Today's to do: For 1 day, (yup try it for 1 whole day) measure your food and see how much an actual serving is. hint: the serving suggestion is on the box or on the chart!

Have a healthy day!
