VISUAL GUIDE TO PORTION CONTROL

Portion control guide

I love this quick and easy guide form mayoclinic.com.  Can’t remember it?  Add this pic to your phone for quick reference!

“Confused about serving sizes? These visual cues can help you easily estimate them.  Contrary to what you might think, portion control does not require taking drastic measures. Memorizing a complete inventory of food serving sizes or carrying measuring cups with you to meals just isn’t necessary. Simply use these serving size guide illustrations to help you easily identify accurate portions.

Remember that a portion is not the same as a serving. A portion is an amount of food on your plate. A serving is a specific amount of food that equals a certain number of calories. Often the “portion” you eat contains more than one “serving.” Keep that in mind while cooking and making food selections.”

 

Eat well.  Enjoy life!
