Using the power of video to its best advantage this program teaches teens how to choose the right food portions for their body type and metabolism and to visualize these portions in memorable ways.

Nationwide, teenagers have become accustomed to eating "supersized." This is a major factor in the obesity epidemic affecting teens today. Kids are suffering from weight-related health problems--diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, and even heart disease.

The goal of this program is to teach teens how to correctly measure food portions using everyday, easy-to-understand analogies. For example, a protein portion should be about the same size as the palm of your hand; a portion of baked potato is about the size of a computer mouse. Using video to visualize portions, the program teaches viewers the difference between supersized portions and nutritionally correct portions. Once teens understand the right food portions for their body and metabolism, they can make healthy judgments about food portions at every meal, every day, for long-term health.

Portion Control also gives teens practical tips on checking labels, ordering small or medium sizes at restaurants, taking home leftovers from restaurants, sharing meals with friends and starting with smaller amounts on dinner plates.
