Bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to portion sizes. Standard portion sizes have increased significantly over the years, making it difficult for some to keep calorie intake under control.
Obesity has been increasing from last century in Americans. In 1997 15% of the Americans are obese, in 2010 36% of the Americans are obese and now shockingly 69% of Americans are obese.
Every food’s portion size has increased a lot which is a direct reason for obesity. These portion sizes can be decreased by not serving food at dinner table, eating a handful of rice, pasta and vegetables. Having palm size of meat, poultry, a complete handful of raisins and nuts, two complete handfuls of popcorn. A thumb of butter and thumb tip of oil serving will help you in reducing obesity.
