This week, Romy and Michael talk about how it seems like more and more people are less and less aware of their true body size and body composition, and discuss several factors that might be influencing this shift.
Do men lie about their actual weight as frequently as women do?
Discussion: The discussion continues about the recent body perception study that was done, and Romy and Michael theorize about the implications of some of the results, plus the clothing size “adjustments” that have started to confuse people about what size they might truly be.
Next, Romy talks about the importances of tracking the actual calories in serving sizes vs the real size of the portions you might be eating.
In addition to the websites like CalorieKing, reference books Romy recommends are The Complete Book of Food Counts by Corinne Netzer or Bowes and Church’s Food Values of Portions Commonly Used
