Believe It Or Not Eveything You Can Eat At One Sitting Is Not One Portion

Americans have no sense of what an appropriate portion size is anymore. We think that any sized bag of chips is single serving. And some products aren't helping the cause. How many times have you eaten a snack and glanced to check the calories and thought oh that's not so bad...but then looked a little closer and saw that that little bag of chips wasn't one serving but two.

Well good news... snack companies are finally trying to help. They're advertising and packaging snacks in 100 calorie bags. That way we know exactly how many calories we're snacking on. You're defintely paying a premium for them measuring out your portions for you, but to me it's worth it.

Read all about it here.

The only downside for me now is that it takes 6 or 7 bags to get the same chip high I used to get in one supersized bag.
