    Almonds - really- 10?

    'What kind of almonds are you eating? :tongue: I have some at my desk - Serving size 28 nuts = 160 cal (Blue Diamond in the can)
    I count out 28 and put the can away. My co-workers think I'm insane. LOL

    Pop Tarts - 1 pastry.

    If the serving is ONE pastry why do they put TWO in a package?!! Trickery

    I was JUST about to say this! What am I supposed to do with the other one? I'm a single lady with nobody to share my pop tarts with :sad:

    Stick it in a ziploc for tomorrow?

    Soup or any other canned food where there are not an even number of serving sizes. Who is the one who gets the extra 40mls in a can of soup that is 540mls but the serving size is 250mls? If I split the can into two bowls, each one is 1.08 servings?

    Cereal - most are 3/4 of a cup. At a minimum I do 1 cup. Though sometimes *coughtodaycough* I do two cups haha

    I fill up my bowl. I just guesstimate (bad idea I know) that it's about 2 cups. I should just stay away from cereal...it always makes me hungrier.

    I don't let a package dictate what my serving is going to be...it just helps with the math.

    Good news peeps!!! The FDA is going to change the serving sizes from "mere morsel" to "what we actually eat"... so no more 2.5 servings in a 20 oz of soda... no more 2 tagalongs... or half a candy bar... ;)


    Because we can't just do the math ourselves??

    Perhaps the same reason bottles of lighter fluid have a flammable warning.

    Actually the FDA does not put nutrition labels on anything, the manufacturers do, funded by PEOPLE who purchase their products. This "good news" is expected to cost consumers 2 billion dollars. Neither the government nor business pays for anything, they simply pass the added cost to YOU AND ME.

    That's what I do! I put the baggie in the box before I've even eaten the first one, so it's there and I have no excuse.
