Determining Heart-Healthy Portions at Restaurants
Dining out is a fun way to get together with family and friends, but it isn’t always the healthiest choice. Portions at restaurants are often much larger than what a single serving really should be, which takes a toll on your waistline and your health.
Watch this video to get a handle on what a healthy serving size of some restaurant favorites really looks like. A baked potato should be about the size of a computer mouse, while a single serving of fish should be about the size of a deck of cards. If your plate comes piled with too much food, ask the waiter to bag up part of your meal to go.
