Learn How to Spot Healthy Portion Sizes in Restaurants

Last updated 4 years ago

Many American restaurants serve meals that can greatly exceed recommended daily calorie needs. This video offers some tips on how to determine a single portion size when enjoying a restaurant meal.

A single portion size depends on the type of food. For instance, nutritional experts recommend keeping in mind the average size of three dice when eating dairy products such as cheese. When ordering a baked potato, eat only that which would match the size of a computer mouse. Should you want to dine on seafood, keep your fish portion size to that of a deck of cards.

Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson offers the Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral system for local residents. To learn more about maintaining a nutritious diet, call us at (888) 741-5119.
