This is GREAT! So true. My husband eats 3 slices of pizza so I think I'll eat two and it's ok.

i am definitely a 3rd group person... eat super healthy now but larger portions than i should. lots of whole grain organic rice.. but uhh a serving size is 1/3 cup and that's over 90 calories!

or cereal. i've switched to better cereals (lower calorie) but i'm amazed at how small a cup is. So now i eat in a smaller bowl to make sure I'm only eating a cup, and I try to eat lower calorie cereals.

portion size will trick you!!

Mindless Eating by Brian Wassink

A REALLY great book that talks about how easy it is to fool ourselves into truly believing we eat less than we do (and simple changes to make to painlessly eat less...a fun read.)

I had a friend who was number 1- simply had no clue b/c in her life had never kept track of what she ate or thought of portion size. When she decided she wanted to lose weight and figured out portions - her weight fell off. I hate her ;)

I'm none of the above. I know portions all too well. I'm a chronic "I'll start tomorrow" person!!

I would say in the past a 4. i would exercise a lot and eat a big plate of spaghetti and wonder why the scale wouldn't move.

What about following Eat to Live?

I'm a total Joel Fuhrman convert. I eat 100% vegan, very little oil, lots of beans and greens. He says I can eat all I want of fresh fruits, veggies, and legumes, so I do. I lost 30 pounds from last May to October, and since then I've bounced up about 5 pounds and held steady around 130. I exercise every day. I'd like to be done with that five pound re-gain, but I'm at war with myself over what I feel like I have "permission" to eat, and reducing even my beans and greens portion size, or reducing the number of fresh fruits I eat every day, or eliminating that one bowl of oatmeal in the morning, or cutting out the raisins and dates I enjoy as a snack. thoughts?
