Sometimes I Wish That It Would Rain Here

more not always better

I've previously noted some of the problems with blaming obesity on large portion sizes in restaurants. here's an interesting article looking at the development of portion size over the past twenty years. in discussing changes in the size of coffee servings, the author notes that "When made into a mocha, the morning coffee has as many calories as a full meal." perhaps that's part of why people don't eat breakfast (which ends up being pretty darn important in terms of setting your metabolism for the rest of the day). there's not a not of data there, but there certainly are some interesting comparisons.
