Making Portion Control Easy

Today I talk about how I watched the video about the 21 day fix and I saw where this is a system with a food plan, and built in portion control. I wanted to see what other kind of products have built in portion control.

Portion Control Sizes – How to Know the Right Portions

The next time you're in a sporting good store, pick up a baseball. I think you will be surprised how small it is (I think most of us think its close to the size of a softball, but its a LOT smaller). A portion of meat is the size of the palm of your hand (not including your fingers). For more examples of how to properly judge portion control check out this PDF.

    This episode was great!

    You said “If this is the size of the chicken breast, what size was the chicken?? Godzilla?!?!?!”

    “Most of the sizes of my pancakes are the size of my head!”

    So true.. This goes back to eating at home.. Restaurants don’t portion control like they should. Plates are definitely getting bigger, and portions are increasing as well.

    Great episode!
