Paying Attention to Portions

Many people unintentionally overeat because they don’t know what a healthy serving size is. Watch this video to learn how proper portioning plays a role in weight management and why you should monitor your food intake.

Although items such as muffins and hot dogs may seem reasonably-sized for a meal, many restaurants and food markets offer larger portions in order to entice customers and increase profits. This causes people to consume more calories than they intend, and can sabotage healthy eating plans.

To learn more about controlling portion size and making good food choices, call Riverside Community Hospital’s Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line at (951) 788-3000. Our nurses are available 24 hours a day to provide health information and physician referrals.
