RealClear Staff


I'm going on a diet...

Portion control has gotten a little out of hand in recent time. Obesity and overweight rates in the United States are higher than they've ever been, and they don't show a sign of slowing down any time soon.

Opting to take matters into their own hands, the folks at wiseGEEK decided to raid their fridges and measure out what 200 calories, 1/10th of the average recommended daily caloric intake, actually looks like when put in terms of typical foods.

The results are, to be blunt, shocking. The plate used is 10.25 inches in diameter.
