Ugh, as I wake up this morning and regret consuming an entire burrito that was roughly the size of my head last night;
I come across this diagram demonstrating just how ridiculous portion sizes in the good ol’ US of A are getting. Starbucks have released a new Trenta size which is bigger than the average person’s stomach. (How does that even work?!)

Yup, this size is the equivalent of the liquid in a wine bottle. Except it’s coffee and you most likely don’t share it with a friend over dinner.
In Wow! Glowing Bride in 30 Days, I talk about portion size, and how controlling it is the simplest and most enjoyable way to lose or maintain a healthy weight. Deprivation is futile – cut your cake, burrito, or coffee, in half and you can still enjoy a little of what you fancy on the regular.
