Size matters (we always knew that) but it really matters when it comes to portion sizes.
Know what one serving of protein really looks like? You might be shocked, it’s a measly 75 g (2 ½ oz.) or 125 mL (½ cup) cooked fish, shellfish, poultry or lean meat.
I am so concerned about the confusion on what a serving looks like that I taped a segment on CityLine airing Wednesday, January 9 all about portion sizes.
If your New Year’s Resolution was to eat healthier, check out what a serving size is according to Canada’s Food Guide.

I love eating tasty food and this web site is doing a great job by posting articles on food and the ways to have food. This post on the serving size was a great read. Keep up the good work guys. I am waiting for more new posts from you guys.
