Food companies pledge to cut 1.5 trillion calories

By 2015, several of the top food makers in the U.S. have pledged to reduce calorie counts by 1.5 trillion.  The most exciting part of this announcement is that they are targeting portion sizes as one of the primary ways to meet their goal.  It seems that after years of portion sizes creeping upwards, we may finally be hitting a plateau and starting to see discussion of reducing portion sizes.  Let’s hope we can keep up the momentum around a return to more reasonable portions.  You can read more about the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation here.
