portion size

Courtesy of the Washington Post comes this illustration of the new dietary guidelines.

Though I'm actually enjoying all the vegetables, that's rather tiny bit of meat there, isn't it? Lately I have been dutifully limiting meat portions to the size of my palm, which is roughly 3 ounces, I believe. It was all going well, until last night when apparent trans-fat deprivation led me into an uncontrollable rampage for burgers and fries at the local Wendy's. That's my defense, your Honor.
