How much do you REALLY eat?

Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 2.45.56 AMWe’ve all heard the saying, you are what you eat.

There’s no arguing with the fact that what you put into your body matters. No one wants to be fast, cheap, easy or fake.

But, how much you eat is also important. Things like quantity, portion control and serving size can have a huge impact on caloric intake. Overdose on how much you’re eating and prepare for some unwanted weight gain.
