Super-Size Me

Almost all of us underestimate how much we eat. For example, would you have guessed that the average pasta serving in a restaurant is six cups? This is two to three times more than a healthy serving. We are living in a "super-sized" environment and our sense of what a reasonable portion size looks like has become skewed by servings outside the home, like the enormous soda and popcorn containers offered in movie theaters. Reeducate yourself as to what a healthy portion of food looks like. (The Step Diet Book, James O. Hill, et al., p. 20)
