Super Size for a Thunder Thighs and a Big Butt

Next time you want to save some money and super size, you may want to look at the calorie breakdown. Small fries are about 230 cals. where the SS is a whopping 500 cals. A small soda is about 85 cals. versus the big gulp alternative at 300 cals. The same goes for home or other restaurants. Take pasta for example, a 2 cup serving is about 280 cals. but a large serving is about 4 plus cups and 500 cals. A small bagel is 140 calories but a SS serving can be between 350 and 500 cals.
I have worked with hundreds of people over the past 20 years and most have wanted to lose weight. I can't tell you have many have told me they eat pretty well. Avoiding the obvious joke, the problem is not always what people eat but how much they eat. My suggestion is to start looking at how many calories are in the staples in your diet. Get an ounce scale and spend a week measuring some of the foods you eat all the time. Most of the calories are right on the container, but you need to see what size equals what calorie count. You may be in for a big surprise but a good lesson and some useful information.
