When I first started teaching nutrition education, one of my favorite sayings was be wise about portion size. It rhymes, it’s catchy, and it’s true! When we are wise about portion size, we can better fuel our bodies in they way they need to be fueled. It is important to note the difference between a serving size and a portion size. A serving size is a standardized amount of food, like the recommendations from MyPlate. A portion size is the amount of food you choose to eat. The amount you choose to eat may be more or less than a serving size. The key to success is learning how to balance the two.
