Food Diary - 07/08/05

Yogurt: 6 oz. 80 calories, no fat.
Milk: 1 pint. 140 calories, 45g fat.

The milk i drank this morning was 2% fat, high-protein. However, the bottle said it contained two servings. So was I actually consuming 280 calories and 90g of fat, or did the figures indicate the total calories contained in the bottle, and not the calories per serving?

Why are there two servings in the bottle?! Do the manufacturers think I'm going to put half of the bottle back in the refrigerator and save it for lunch? I also notice that this is intended for someone on a 2000 calorie a day diet. I need to consume about half that, given my body type and the amount of exercise I typically get. No wonder so many people in this country are overweight; our food packaging typically contains twice the amount we need.
