What is a Healthy Portion Size?

Great little guide for those of you trying to get your heads round portion sizes, especially if you've found counting calories tiresome.  This guide was found on Guardyourhealth.com. These are handy visual aids, but I think they should still be used with caution, it doesn't really take into account any addition to the main food group. For example, a fist size portion of plain rice will have less calories than a fist size portion of say biriyani or stir-fried rice. Still useful though, as it can help make you more mindful of how much you could be over eating.

Till next time, EAT mindfully, DRINK responsibly, and EXERCISE your mind and body!!!
