Calorie Counts

It is funny that I wrote the note I did yesterday in relation to serving size.

Today in the USA Today the discussed the way teens have no idea what calorie count a meal has.

It is scary to think the larger the meal the farther off the kids were....if a meal was 1500 calories kids thought it was 700  if a meal was 1000 kids thought it was 800 if a meal was 750 the kids thought it was 500.

We are living in an age where we have been conditioned to think if we order a meal it is the same no matter what the size of the sandwich the side or the dessert.

We must understand going forward that the eyes need to tell us when something is larger than the average serving.

We must take responsibility.
