MORE ON SERVING SIZE ON NUTRITION LABEL

One of the things I failed to mention on the previous post about serving size on the nutritional label of food packing is this, the serving size listed is the USDA recommended healthy portion of that particular food. Look at this portion of the nutrition information on a bag of Cracker Jack. You will note the serving size is 1/2 cup.  Let's be honest here. How many of you with a bag of Cracker Jack will eat only 1/2 cup? No one is telling you not to eat Cracker Jack (unless you are diabetic, then I am!) but remember when you go past 1/2 cup you are eating more than you should.


Train your body to be satisfied with the recommended or healthy serving size. Yes it will take time but you can do it.  Until you get your body trained, get a measuring cup, measure out the recommended serving size and remove the remainder from your sight!
