America is known to be one of the most obese nations in the world, and ‘The New Abnormal’ infographic sheds light on the preposterous growth of portion sizes for most meals.

It is obvious that restaurants and fast food joints are a contributing factor to this potentially life-threatening issue. Over the last 60 years or so, a standard meal has swelled to four times its initial portion. Soda sizes have grown six-times larger, hamburgers are three-times heavier and fries have almost tripled in size as well.

Though the changes have been made in accordance to popular demand, it is clear that food establishments must take a hard line towards diminishing quantities in order for the population to lead a better lifestyle.
