This is why we're fat, says the CDC:
"Portion sizes have been growing. So have we. The average restaurant meal today is more than four times larger than in the 1950s. And adults are, on average, 26 pounds heavier. If we want to eat healthy, there are things we can do for ourselves and our community: Order the smaller meals on the menu, split a meal with a friend, or, eat half and take the rest home. We can also ask the managers at our favorite restaurants to offer smaller meals."
Of course, they don't bother to explain how they arrive at these numbers. But who cares if CDC is pushing policy instead of science? Woah - they should pull their entire Sexual Health site and replace it with one touting the wonders of abstinence!
