Question description

Assuming that we all follow the recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans or MyPyramid, we have a fairly good idea of what to eat.  However, do we know how to eat it?  Unfortunately, many Americans struggle not only with food choices, but also food portions.  We have become a society of “colossal cuisine” which has caused us to exceed the daily caloric recommendations.  Using Figure 2-11 from Chapter 2 of the textbook as a reference, discuss the change in our portion sizes over the last few decades.  Why have they increased so significantly?  What are the health implications of this change?  Discuss the use of simple and low cost tools/techniques people can use to help with portion control.  Identify at least three tools/techniques.  What is one strategy you particularly like and why?

Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and a minimum of one additional scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
