Weight Loss Comedy A Fun Look at Portions
I have been on my weight loss journey for four months now and I am starting to learn the ropes so to speak. I remember when I first started to take note of the number of calories. You know the drill, turn the food item over to look at the nutritional information.. Of coarse if you are getting older like me this means you have to look over your glasses to read the fine print because I refuse to get progressives (a nice name for bi-focals). Then you see the number of calories. But it doesn't stop there. If it's a can of soup that you plan to eat, you must now do the math!!! Multiply the number of servings in the can (usually some odd number like 2.5) times the calories. Wow, to a fat guy like me with a life long habit of overeating, it seems the little can of food has about half the calories I should eat for the day. LOL! So in this sense, I made this video a while back that is looking at proper portions from the eyes of this fat guy. Remember, it is just a joke and not serious...hope you enjoy!
