( — Many changes have taken place over the past 20 years, but one major change affecting our health is portion size – and how easily, and cheaply, we can stuff ourselves on unhealthy food options. Who would have thought that a quarter-pound cheeseburger could cost only $1? Or a meal of chicken nuggets, French fries, and drink would be only $2.99?

We want it all and for a low price we can get it all: a full stomach and a host of health problems. We have to ask ourselves if this really is a good deal, not only for our pocket and appetite but for our overall well-being.

Bigger Portions = Bigger Health Problems
