Do You Eat Out?
Next time you're eating out, use visual cues to remind yourself what a serving size equals. For example:
- A serving of meat is about the size of a deck of cards.
- A tennis ball is about the size of one serving of cooked vegetables.
- A computer mouse is the size of a small baked potato.
A good rule of thumb is to eat half of the food on your plate while eating out and bring the rest home for leftovers.
