According to the Mayo Clinic, people eat more when presented with larger portions of food. And oversized restaurant and packaged food portions have most of us tricked when it comes to realistic serving size. Have you ever looked at the back of a bag of chips and thought, “This should serve how many people?” Incredibly, even children as young as 2 are deceived by package sizes into overeating.
It isn’t practical to carry a food scale everywhere, so use these visual cues to keep plates proportionate.
