The Truth About Serving Sizes

We’re all guilty of eating until we’re not only full; we eat until we’re really full. Have you ever been to a restaurant and forced yourself to finish that huge steak? That massive bowl of pasta? You’re nearly ready to burst, but because your plate is still half full, you keep going. Chances are your restaurant meal is supersized, even if you’re not at a fast food restaurant.

It’s been 20 years since I first began going through menopause. It seems like just yesterday when I was standing by the espresso machine at a local coffee shop, teaching my employees how to tamp and pull the perfect shot of coffee, and found myself covered in sweat.
