i think people should consider the portion side of their food almost as much as what they eat. moderation is always a good thing. i don't eat steak often, and if it do, it is almost never in a resturant, where they will cover a steak with butter as it is being grilled, and often heavily sprinkled with salt or seasonings loaded with MSG. I grill it at home with none of the extra stuff. And the size, we Americans are use to either having or wanting everything supersized. to many men, a steak isnt a steak unless its a good 12 to 16 oz. When I have a steak its in the 6 to 8 oz range at the most, and any visible fat is removed after cooking.
instead of denying oneself of foods they love, just eat it less often and don't pig out. my wife and i stopped the other American practice of dining at "all you can eat" buffets. here in the deep south, they are among the most popular places to eat. we just don't go to those anymore. you always end up overeating, and you also have to watch people making absolute gluttons of themselves. kind of gross really.
so less is better, and better quality foods is better. i still eat what i want, just less of it, and we eat out less by choice so we can control the quality.
