With Americans’ average weight continuing to grow, we must be more and more careful about the amount of things we put into our mouths. When talking to a co-worker yesterday I realized that people might be losing track of portion sizes because they are never followed. I know a cup of coffee is 6 oz. He told me this was impossible and it had to be at least 8. Tell me the last time anyone drank just 6oz of coffee?
