Stale Popcorn, Anyone??

In her section on “portion shockers” Lisa R. Young, author of The Portion Teller gives the following tidbit:

“Moviegoers who said that the popcorn tasted stale still ate 61% more than when given a larger container than a smaller one. Even when it doesn’t taste great, people still eat more out of a large container.”

What more dramatic example can you ask for than that?!

Get control of your eating by knowing portion sizes. What you don’t know, or even pay attention to, can hurt you.
