I find that using a scale is better for me that eyeballing it. Especially since I'm not sure what the actual size of a hockey puck, billiard ball or baseball really are. And even then it is really just a guesstimate so for me weighing my food is a better option.

Very informative article. I am guilty of not eating the right portions. Will have to keep on eye out in the future.

I have a good basic food scale. It makes all the difference in the world.

I don't know of any bakers who make bread in the size of an index card and I am fairly sure that they all weigh more than 1 ounce. I am not counting Weight Watchers bread or Hovis breads in my statement.Its odd I think we are ALL too sedentary- my maternal grandpa used to eat bread or buns at every meal and was skinny as a rail until he died at 97. He was also always active and didn't worry about what he ate,

Make it a priority to fill your eyes and mind with people, places and images that inspire you.

My greatest issue is fat. I eat healthy fats mostly, however, nuts and some seeds present a problem. I really have difficulty with sticking with appropriate portions of nuts. I now buy the little bags and try to cut down on sunflower seeds or mixed nuts. I need to avoid the oily, salty kinds and try to stick with the raw ones. I almost always go over in fats even though the fats I eat are heart healthy and promote health in the body!
