21. One of the Best Ways to Lose Stomach Fat – Knowing Your Portions
Do you know how big a serving size ought to be?
Try this: pour what you think is one serving of cold cereal into a bowl, then measure it against what the side of the box says is a serving.
Most of us pour double the suggested serving size!
And worse, restaurants tend to serve more than twice the serving size, especially in meat and in fats.
A serving of meat ought to be about the size of a deck of cards.
Most restaurants serve a portion of chicken or beef that’s at least twice that — be sure you know what a serving size looks like, and save the rest for left-overs.
