Portion Distortion - By Webefit.Com - Quiz

How much are you REALLY eating? Take this quiz after reading our article on Portion Distortion. Do you know how big your servings sizes should be?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How many ounces are in a serving of meat? (Beef, chicken or pork.)

    • A.

      3 Ounces

    • B.

      4 Ounces (1/4 Pound)

    • C.

      6 Ounces

    • D.

      8 Ounces (1/2 Pound)

    Correct Answer
    A. 3 Ounces
    Explanation
    Just because a restaurant serves an 8 or 12 ounce steak, doesn't make it a single serving. Even a quarter pound burger is too much. A single serving of meat is 3 ounces. That's about the size of a deck of cards.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How many ounces are in a serving of fish? (Flounder, sole or grouper.)

    • A.

      3 Ounces

    • B.

      4 Ounces (1/4 Pound)

    • C.

      6 Ounces

    • D.

      8 Ounces (1/2 Pound)

    Correct Answer
    A. 3 Ounces
    Explanation
    A serving of fish is exactly the same weight as a serving of beef, chicken or pork. 3 ounces. The difference is that fish tends to be less dense, so 3 ounces looks bigger. A 3 ounce serving of fish is about the size of a personal checkbook.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is a single serving of salad dressing?

    • A.

      1 Tablespoon (The size of a single dice.)

    • B.

      2 Tablespoons (The size of a ping pong ball.)

    • C.

      4 Tablespoons (The size of two shot glasses.)

    Correct Answer
    B. 2 Tablespoons (The size of a ping pong ball.)
    Explanation
    Traditional dressing randomly poured over a salad can make it a nutritional nightmare. A single serving takes up the same amount of space as one ping pong ball or a traditional shot glass. For best results, order your salad dressing on the side. Then dip your fork in the dressing each time before spearing the salad. That gives every bite a little flavor without drowning your salad.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A single serving of butter is:

    • A.

      1/2 Teaspoon

    • B.

      1 Teaspoon

    • C.

      2 Teaspoons

    • D.

      1 Tablespoon

    Correct Answer
    B. 1 Teaspoon
    Explanation
    A single serving of butter is 1 teaspoon, about the size of a postage stamp. If you find yourself using more than that, try switching to spray butter. It's more convenient, covers food exceptionally well and you can control the serving size by how many times you press the pump.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    How big is a single serving of pasta, popcorn or potatoes?

    • A.

      1/2 Cup

    • B.

      1 Cup

    • C.

      1.5 Cups

    • D.

      2 Cups

    Correct Answer
    B. 1 Cup
    Explanation
    One level cup is an average serving of cooked pasta, popcorn or potatoes. That's about the size of a baseball. One cup is also considered the typical serving size for cereal as well, but you still have to read the label. Cereals can range from 1/2 a cup to 1.5 cups per serving.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A single serving of cheese weighs how much?

    • A.

      1 Ounce (1 Slice)

    • B.

      2 Ounces (2 Slices)

    • C.

      3 Ounces (3 Slices)

    • D.

      4 Ounces (4 Slices)

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 Ounce (1 Slice)
    Explanation
    A single serving is 1 ounce. That's typically one slice of pre-cut cheese or the size of two dominos.
