How Much Am I Actually Eating?
1. How well did you do? Were you generally in agreement with the quiz? I did pretty well I didn’t agree with two examples the first was the ice cream scoop, and the second was the cereal serving per bowl. But for the most part I agree with all of the other examples they were more realistic.
2. How do you think having a better understanding of serving sizes may help you monitor the amount of saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories in your diet? Having a better understanding will help me with my eating habits. I tend to over eat anything that I’m eating. And by taking this quiz will change that. I didn’t know two scoop of ice cream for example doubles the calories. I always thought that by just eating the ice cream was the amount of calories regardless of how much you consume. From now on I will be reading the label and try my very best to follow the serving to maintain a healthier diet for me and my family. Thankful no one in my family has high cholesterol, but it’s still something to consider. So I’ll bake instead of frying and use canola oil if I every do decide to fry. For a while now I’ve been looking for tran fat in everything. For some reason that has been a major factor to me since I see Mcdonald’s and Subway puts it on their menu. So I’ve learned to watch what I eat and how much of it.
