Serving Sizes

The holidays are quickly approaching and that can lead to weight gain if we are not careful. Keeping an eye on servings sizes along with regular exerice will help combat those unwanted pounds. Many of us will be tempted with tasty treats that only come at this time of year or have little control over the meals prepared when vising others. Here are some guidelines to aid you in this battle:

cereal (1 c.) = a baseball
salad dressing (2 Tbsp.) = a shot glass
nuts (1 oz.) = a cupped palm
cheese (1 oz.) = a ping-pong ball
hamburger (3 oz.) = a mayo jar lid
peanut butter (1 tsp.) = one die
beef (3 oz.) = a bar of soap
rice (1/2 c.) = an ice cream scoop
potato = a computer mouse
dinner roll = a yo-yo
butter (1 tsp.) = a Scrabble tile
fruit (1 c.) = a tennis ball
cooked pasta (1/2 c.) = a golf ball
fish (3 oz.) = a checkbook
poultry (3 oz.) = a deck of playing cards
