The standard serving sizes are often much less than what people actually eat. Many individuals often believe they’re eating fewer calories than they take in, which can lead to unwanted weight gain.

The number of servings you should eat each day from each food group is based on your body’s calorie needs, your preferences, activity level and goal. Since weight gain results from eating more calories than you take in, keep in mind that how much you eat is just as important as what you eat.
