Who Ever Said America Had A Food Portion Problem? Japan Is Worse!

We”re constantly told by health professionals that one of the reasons Americans are overweight is because our food portions are just too darned big. While that may be objectively true, when it comes to portion size we still have a long way to go to catch up with Japan.

Yes, I know that seems unbelievable, but it”s true. A new trend of super sized portions known as “ohmori,” or “large serving,” is becoming popular in Japan. Words can only do so much to describe ohmori-size foods. You”ve just got to see the pictures.

Warning! If you”re not hungry now, you will be by the end of this post.
