I’ve started dieting and exercising (again). Today, I went home for lunch and decided I’d have a can of chicken noodle soup. I pop it in the microwave and I look at the label to write down the nutritional information and I look at the serving size. 1/2 cup. How many servings in a can? 2.5.
If you have a measuring cup nearby please grab it. Look at 1/2 cup. WHO ON EARTH WOULD EAT 1/2 CUP OF SOUP AND BE FULL?!?!? I’m not talking about people who have had gastric bypass surgery and can only eat 4 oz at a time. I mean normal people who should consume 2,000 to 2,500 calories a day.
If there are 2.5 servings in a can, WHY do they show someone pouring the whole can in a bowl and sitting down to eat it with crackers and a drink on the commercials??? Are there 1.5 people hiding behind them to share this meal?
WHY can’t people just put realistic labels on food? Everyone knows that people eat a whole freakin’ can of soup. I’m not talking about the extra large Chunky cans or the Progresso cans. I mean one regulal ol’ can of soup. Yes, I know you’re supposed to add 1 can of water but I don’t – I only add 1/2 can because I like it more flavorful.
I’m just saying, let’s get REAL people!!!
