Restaurants are looking for ways to cope with rising costs (7/22, Business, “Prices boiling for restaurants; As food and fuel costs rise, local eateries are making adjustments with their diners in mind”). One idea mentioned was reducing portion size. What a clever, innovative idea!
If restaurants served proper serving sizes dictated by the FDA’s food pyramid:.
One wouldn’t have to compromise on what to order with a dining guest, because they could each order their own item.
The diner wouldn’t feel guilty about eating every morsel on the plate.
The diner would leave the restaurant feeling comfortable instead of miserable.
Those who now eat at restaurants routinely might lose weight.
The restaurants would discard less food.
More people may gladly walk through their doors.
And, of course, the bill might be cheaper.
