Use Household Objects to Estimate Serving Sizes

Use Household Objects to Estimate Serving SizesOne of the keys to maintaining weight and staying healthy is portion control, but serving sizes can be rather vague and a pain to measure exactly. Instead of breaking out the scales and cups, compare food to real world objects like in this handy illustration.
