What you see might shock you, and even those who consider themselves familiar with healthy portion control might be surprised by this Buzzfeed video demonstrating the actual recommended serving sizes of your favorite junk foods. But mainly, we feel bad for that mozzarella stick. Poor little guy, all alone! Maybe he can be friends with that measly pile of Doritos?
