Seasonal Tips


Portion control is an important part of losing or managing weight.  You may be surprised to learn that the portion size you are used to eating may be equal to two or three standard servings.  You may find it helpful to use common everyday objects to help estimate serving sizes.  Here are a few handy tips:  1 teaspoon of margarine or oil is about the size of your fingertip (tip to first joint); an average cupped hand is about 1/2 cup of fruit, vegetables or cooked rice; an average palm is about 3 ounces of meat or poultry.
