I am Canadain, and spend a few weeks every year in Southern California (my family and I have a love affair with Disney) and I have noticed on every occasion that it seems the average American is bigger than the average Canadian and the meal sizes are close to double.
In Canada a meal of chicken fingers and fries would get you about 4 fingers and half a cup of fries, I ordered the same meal in California and it came with, 8 chicken fingers, a muffin, a side salad and about a cup of fries.
Has anyone else who frequents both countries noticed this? And does anyone think that the rise in childhood obesity, early onset diabetes etc. has less to do with inactivity and more to do with portion control?
Just thoughts..comment away..
