Portion Sizes in Restaurants Larger than Before

Portion sizes dished out by most restaurant chefs are two to four times bigger than the government's recommended serving sizes. Knowing well that these large amounts are// contributing to increasing weight of their diners, the chefs believe customers expect large platefuls of food when eating out.

A third of them worked in elegant restaurants; some in company cafeterias, casual eateries, and fast food places.
