“Using the Hess and Powers book depicting serving size portions is without a doubt the single most in-demand resource nutrition educators ask for when planning and delivering both individual and group presentations. Once the educator shows the pictures, the learner conceptualizes real-life amounts of foods (so beautifully shown) he or she starts to talk in portion-size words and looks back over the text many times to ascertain the next discussed food item. It is so appealing: I use it for many of my general nutrition classes as well as a resource for my senior nutrition students here at the university. What a remarkable achievement!”

"Managing carbohydrate intake is critical in the care of diabetes. This book is a terrific tool to help people with diabetes learn about carbohydrate foods and portion sizes! It is engaging and helps create a discussion about food choices and the pleasure of eating."

"We use this book for all research where we need accurate food portions from participants. It is more mobile than food models and has so many foods! Our research is better because of this book."
