Even the most careful eaters and cooks let their inner portion police take a holiday. And that's when the calories pile on.
Though we may be well-aware of the importance of appropriate portion sizes, it's still easy to let the amount of food we eat
get away from us. A little too much here, a little too much there, and pretty soon the calories begin to add up. And we all
have different challenges when it comes to proper portions. Here we identify common "portion personalities" and offer tips
to combat the portion problems of each.
For example, you might be an All-Day Snacker.

Portion Problem: Caveman's counterpart under-estimates the calorie count in carbs.
Portion Problem: Great cook. Adds ingredients and serves everything by sight and taste.
