Did you know that an extra 100 calories (equal to 8oz of soda or a handful of ritz crackers) a day can lead to a potential weight gain of 10 pounds per year? The best way to determine the amount of food in a given serving size is to read the nutrition facts label on the package. Make sure to note how many servings are in a package, and what the serving size is (1 cup, 5 pieces). Be conscious of your snacking habits and make healthy choices like fresh fruit, or celery with a little peanut butter. You can also use smaller bowls and plates to help control your portion sizes.
