In a very lively presentation, Dr Jim Painter, professor in the school of family and consumer sciences at Eastern Illinois University, kept things very simple. The primary reason we're all getting fatter, he said, is that "portions are bigger and food is everywhere".
He went on to show study after study demonstrating that bigger servings, portions, plates and even utensils, make us eat more, in many cases without even realizing it.
You can read a full report of Dr Painter's presentation later this week on FoodNavigator-USA.
