HEALTH TIP: CUT YOUR PORTION SIZE

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

Food por­tions served in res­tau­rants in Paris are about 25 per cent smaller than in the US. This may ex­plain why the French en­joy rich foods – such as crois­sants and cheeses – with­out gain­ing weight. “While the French eat more fat than Amer­i­cans, they prob­a­bly eat slightly fewer calo­ries, which when com­pounded over years can amount to sub­stan­tial dif­fer­ences in weight,” said Paul Rozin, pro­fes­sor of psy­chol­ogy at the Univer­sity of

Penn­syl­va­nia.
