Here is a summary of how some of our favorite foods have changed: Unfortunately, it is not just the quantity of food we are eating that is the problem; it is also the quality or macronutrients, such as fat, carbohydrates and protein.

The remainder is stored in the liver and fat cells in an unhealthy manner, creating inflammation and contributing to diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
Given that news, what can we do to help our families stay healthy, or improve our health in this kind of environment? Here are a few tips to help every family survive and thrive when it comes to portion sizes: When eating out, ask for a to-go box and take half of your meal home.
Try to order protein, such as meat or fish, or plant-based food such as tofu, over carbohydrates such as pasta, rice and potatoes. When eating out, ask to hold the starch pasta, potatoes, rice and double up on the veggies.
When serving food at home, use smaller plates for the main course, and larger ones for the salad. When eating at home, try to buy fresh, local produce in season. Stay away from processed foods as much as possible. When plating your food, make half of the plate veggies and salad.
The starchy carb items should be the smallest part of your plate. Have your family get up and serve themselves. Do not leave the food on the table, or everyone will eat more. When lured by more food for less money, look to see if they are just adding more starch pasta, French fries or rice.
Limit eating out to no more than once per week, and try to cook more healthy meals at home. When eating, just eat! Refrain from watching TV, using electronics or reading a magazine or book.
