Our society has lost the concept of portion sizes. Everything can be super sized and large sized and a typical meal at a restaurant these days is enough to feed two people. Correct portion sizes leave people still feeling the signs of actual hunger because they are so used to society’s current idea of portions.
For a typical meal of a meat and two sides a plate should have 3 ounces of meat, a cup of rice or pasta and a cup of vegetables. That is roughly a serving of meat the size of the palm of a hand, and sides the size of a fist. This serving size is a fraction of what many people pile on their plates at home and what they are served at restaurants. The obesity epidemic is largely a result of these inflated portions.
This doesn’t even cover the sauces and condiments and dressings that are added to meals. Just as important as eating the right amount of food, is knowing how to read the labels when cooking. Labels have all the information you need to track not just calories but sodium and sugar as well.
A typical salad dressing has over a hundred calories in just one tablespoon, as well as 260 mg of sodium! One hundred calories doesn’t seem too awful, until you consider that when pouring a dressing most people use more than one tablespoon. You could be eating an entire meal’s calories, as a dressing on top of your meal. Too many people flip over a product, and quickly look at the numbers, but never think of the math involved in how much they are consuming. It’s not just a hundred calories when you are freely pouring a product on your food.
But who wants to sit and measure tablespoons of dressings when they are eating with their family or friends? No one does. Which is why Gourme Mist makes things so easy. Just a spray. The labels on Gourme
Mist products show the same information by mist. There is no need to worry how much just got poured onto your plate. Just Mist, and know that you are making the healthy choice. No need for math, no need for measuring.
