As Americans, we have developed a severe case of portion distortion. Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with excessively large servings of food. Getting more food for our money has become a mainstay of our country. But this has been at a sacrifice to our waistlines and overall health. In fact, we have gotten so accustomed to these massive portions, that we feel cheated when we are served a ‘normal-sized’ portion. Do you know what an appropriate portion is? Test your portion savvy skills with this online quiz. And, make sure you check out this interactive portion plate to help you keep your portions under control.

Watching our portions is another strategy to help us lose and/or maintain our weight. In fact, we know that portion control is what allows us to choose the foods we love in moderation and still meet our weight loss goals!
