I'm wondering how many grams should one eat for breakfast, dinner or supper. It would be great to find it out!

Thank you for the visual comparisons... billiard balls, deck of cards, those are things I can imagine accurately.

Wow they should take this article down. This is almost 15 years old, and the info in it, from 20-30 years ago. The USDA food pyramid is based on lobbied research. People should be eating alot less refined carbs, and fats is not the enemy, sugar is.

I've never seen a hockey puck. I'd really like to get these kinds of things in weights. Easier to be precise.

If half a cup of cooked oats is a serving, why is the nutrition information on the bag given for half a cup uncooked?

Look on many healthy sites to get correct sizes for portions. Especially as a diabetic.

Servings are ridiculous. If portions are what we naturally eat, servings need to be resized to match.

I see many people choosing a lot of food for their meal even on the Spark Community. They must be very very active to be able to lose weight on what they consider to be a suitable portion.

An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while the pessimist sees only the red stoplight. The truly wise person is colorblind. - Albert Schweitzer ~ 1/20/18

I select appetizers on the menu if the restaurant won't let me order off the children's menu.
It works better for me then to order knowing the portions are going to be huge.
