While eating good quality food is very important, the amount you eat matters, as well.
Restaurant meals of all kinds have gotten larger with an emphasis on getting more food for the money.
However, the rise of portion sizes is not limited to restaurants alone. Even those who do not frequent restaurants are confronted with large portion sizes of prepackaged or convenience foods.
Portion control is a continuing battle for many people.
