One of America's top comfort foods. I honestly don't know anyone that doesn't like macaroni and cheese. Do you?
For this comparison I used a traditional macaroni and cheese recipe found in most cookbooks. Look at the calorie difference between the above two plates and the amount of weight you can lose at the end of a year with this small 25% portion reduction.
NOTE: I'm still learning how to use my new digital camera. Future photo comparisons will be larger.
25% REDUCED PORTION SIZES
Mac & Cheese = 458 calories
cornbread with 2 t. butter = 190 calories
cabbage, boiled with bacon = 38 calories
TOTAL = 686
CALORIES SAVED = 227
Make a similar portion size adjustment every day for a year and lose 23 pounds with no other changes to your diet or exercise activity.
