EATING STRATEGIES: WHAT DOES AND DOESN’T WORK 2

SHARE
Portion sizes have exploded for just  about all foods and food categories—desserts, salty snacks, soft drinks, bagels, french fries, and burgers. Portion sizes for many popular foods and beverages are two to five times larger than they were when those foods were first intro- duced. So how do women respond to supersizing?
Since women are more likely than men to cut calories by eating smaller portions, they prefer to downsize. Many women have no problem ordering a small skim latte, eating half a bagel, or sharing their husbands dessert (a lot of guys hate when a woman asks the waiter for an extra fork!).
Men generally have no problem with giant-size portions. What guy can resist the all-you-can-eat buffet? But men might want to rethink their eating strategies, especially if they are trying to cut back. Several studies have found that the larger the portion that is served, the more people eat—sometimes up to 26 percent more. So rather than take an approach that works for women (downsizing), guys might be better off trying to find ways to bulk up their meals without adding many calo- ries. Examples include adding lots of low-calorie extras to their sand- wich or burrito, such as lettuce, tomato, and onion; ordering a thin-crust pizza with extra veggies; or adding chopped fruits or berries to their cereal.
