Are you AWARE how PORTIONS have GROWN?

Just look at this comparison of the size of a cookie from 20 years ago to today, Portion sizes have grown without us being aware. This is a contributing factor to the obesity epidemic in America. Be aware of Portion sizes:
One Serving of grains= 1/2 cup pasta or rice
one serving peanut butter= two level tablespoons
one serving meat= 3 oz= deck of cards
one serving beans= 1/2 cup
one serving fruit juice is 6 OZ NOT 8 OZ
one serving cheese= 1 oz= 2 small dice
