Human Sized Portions

Lounging in the post Thanksgiving meal glow.  2 Football games down with one more to go.  I made the commitment this year.  I’m not going to overeat.  I’m not going to overeat.

They say portioning is the key:

  • six ounces of meat (about the size of a pack of cards)
  • 1/2 cup of your sides (about the size of a tennis ball)
  • 1 slice of bread (the size of a cassette tape)
  • 1 slice of pie (deck of cards again)
  • ice cream (size of a lightbule)

I did pretty good.

  1. six ounces of turkey
  2. six ounces of ham
  3. 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes
  4. 1/2 cup of sweet potatoes
  5. 1 dinner roll
  6. 1/2 cup of stuffing
  7. Repeat All – except sweet potatoes
  8. 1 slice of pumpkin pie (yeah, this was a bit more than a deck of cards (quite a bit more))
  9. 1/2 cup of homemade whipped cream (don’t know the right portion size here)

Apparently there is more to this than just human sized portions.
