What's In A Serving? - Colby Cheese

Something I've been thinking about doing for a while now is posting pictures of serving sizes of different foods online. One of the best ways to manage weight and calorie intake is to pay attention to your serving sizes. However, that's not as easy as it sounds. For instance, the nutritional information on the colby cheese wrapper says that one serving equals 1 oz, but what does 1 oz of cheese look like? Does anyone really know? Chances are you will just guess and end up eating way more than a serving. So, for your convenience I will start posting pictures of serving sizes of the more non-obvious types of foods (like pasta). I hope it helps!
