After a quick wait, I received my pizza and drink, only to do a double-take! I couldn't believe the portion sizes here in comparison to South Africa! The personal pizza was the size of a medium pizza in Cape Town. The soda was a 20 oz soda, and in Cape Town, the drink sizes at the restaurants never reached that size. Needless to say, I consumed half the drink and half the pizza, only to get sick on the plane ride from Chicago to Minneapolis.
After a few days of being back in the country, I have finally come to grips that American portion sizes are definitely unnecessary! I always knew portion sizes were a bit over-the-top, but it took a trip across the the world to see the difference!
From the moment I came back to the states, I have been very careful about the amount of food I eat and I have really noticed a difference!
