What's Your Portion Personality?

Even the most careful eaters and cooks let their inner portion police take a holiday. And that's when the calories pile on.

  • A box of pasta serves 8 to 10 people, not 4. One cup of cooked noodles is one serving. Load your plate with salad first, and then add the pasta.
  • Pour cereal into a coffee mug instead of a bowl, and you'll be less likely to overeat. It's the right vessel for a serving of cereal (which varies; check label) and ½ cup low-fat milk.
  • A typical hoagie or sub roll is three to four servings of bread. Hollow out the center, and you'll cut that almost in half.
  • When brown-bagging, make sure you're using a zip-top sandwich bag. At 5 inches square, sandwich bags are sized right for loaf bread. Quart-sized storage bags measure 7 inches—too big.
