Anyone eating on the
run or at restaurants has probably noticed that food portions have gotten
larger. Some portions are called "super size," while others have simply grown
in size and provide enough food for at least two people. With this growth have
come increases in waistlines and body weight.
To see if you know how today's
portions compare to the portions available 20 years ago, quiz yourself on
Portion Distortion I (2003) and Portion Distortion II (2004). You will also
learn about the amount of physical activity required to burn off the extra
calories provided by today's portions.
We hope you find Portion Distortion
insightful and fun. We also hope that next time you eat on the run, you will
think twice about the food portions offered to you.
