Portion Control: What's Good for You?
It's simple: you've got to eat. What's not so simple for some of us is knowing when to say when. But because "when" is not the same for all of us, how should we approach the question of portion control, especially in a society that sometimes sends messages that under-eating is a virtue?

Taking a No-Tolerance Approach to Deceptive Food Labeling
All we want when we look at a food label is to know what's in the stuff we're considering putting in our bodies. Because a lot of companies know they'll move more product if they fudge the facts, only strong disincentives to their doing so will stop them.
What’s New in the Dietary Guidelines
If, like me, you are a fan of high-fat foods like nuts or avocados, high-cholesterol foods like shrimp or eggs, coffee or an occasional alcoholic drink, the new guidelines provide some additional reassurance. They emphasize the need to focus on a health-promoting eating pattern “across the life span” that includes these and other foods, in moderation, while cutting down on added sugar.
On the other hand, the new guidelines can be confusing, containing what seems like conflicting messages and bowing, in some cases, to industry pressures, especially with regard to meats.

Calorie Restriction with Optimum Nutrition
Calorie Restriction with Optimum Nutrition, or CRON, is an acronym given to a diet -- and a lifestyle -- by doctor and UCLA professor of pathology, Roy L. Walford. Walford's experiments, building on research conducted since the 1930's, confirm that laboratory animals whose calories -- not nutrition increases both average and maximum lifespan. Walford began his experiments in the 1960s. Since then, other scientists (e.g., Weindruch and Spindler) have come to similar conclusions -- the primary conclusion being: Calorie Restriction is the only proven, research-backed technique currently known to science which extends lifespan and ones "healthy years".
