Overeating and the Role of Portion Sizes in the Process

Perception of regular Portions: People may overeat as a result of larger portion sizes changing their ideas about what makes a regular meal.

Greater portions could lead to mindless eating since people might not be as aware of how much they are consuming.

Larger servings naturally result in a higher calorie intake, which over time may contribute to weight gain.

Environmental Cues: People may eat more than they need to when greater portion sizes are offered in restaurants and other food businesses.

Packaging & Marketing: How things are marketed and packaged can have an impact on how much is served; bigger portions are sometimes offered as better values.

Social Norms: Social events like parties and get-togethers can mainstream bigger portion sizes, which encourages overindulgence when eating in groups.

Plate Size: The amount of food provided and consumed may vary depending on the size of the plate or container; larger plates may result in greater servings.

Knowledge and Education: Educating people on mindful eating and raising their knowledge of proper portion sizes will help them make better decisions and refrain from overindulging.
