Portion distortion

In North America, we're eating as much as 25 percent more food per person than we did 40 years ago.

Fix it
Taking photos of meals before digging in may help you become more conscious of portion sizes:
• Use your cellphone to take a quick snapshot of what you are about to eat, then store it.
• Refer to the photo later when you write down what you ate and how much in a food diary.
• Looking at the photos might change your mind about overindulging. Use the erase button to delete the photos—use your judgement to cut the extra calories.
