It suddenly occurred to me to wonder, however, how much 30g of cornflakes actually is, so I weighed it one morning - and it's about a third of the amount I'd normally been eating!
I did the same thing. I started using a smaller bowl and for a month used a measuring cup until I felt like I knew what a serving looked like. And a serving of juice is 8 ounces, the cups we use are 16 ounces. That is what I mean about portion size. I started buying the prepackaged bags of nuts and crackers and the like because at least I knew how much I was eating.

I swear, we have no sense of portion control any more.
