The changes I'm speaking about are not world peace, or the political and social climate of the country, however those are definitely worth our attention, but the changes I'm talking about are those that affect us right at home.
It's SERVING SIZES!!!!!
Gradually and without realizing it our serving plates have increased in size by 30% since the 1960's. Since our eye plays tricks on us, we seem to think that the plate should be covered. I mean really, who wants to eat on a large plate with a tiny amount of food on it. I'm hungry just thinking about it. Is it any wonder that we're packing on an extra 20 pounds, ( or more).
|feeling full......................................still hungry|
It doesn't take a mathematician to figure out the relationship
between obesity and serving sizes. We can all do the math.
Take a look at serving sizes then and now.
|330 calories 590 calories|
