So that's what all that noise from the north was So what were we talking about? Oh yea, Health. It has been years since I have eaten in a Canadian restaraunt. How do the proportions compare with US restaraunts? (Excluding the usual chains like McD's)

I also travel alot for work, but so far not out of Canada, so I really don't have a basis for comparison. Portions really depend on the restaurant. Last 2 trips I took were both to the east coast and for $14.00 the hotel restaurant you got an "average" size plate of food. Not too much food, nor too little. We are opening a couple of centers in the US next month, though, so I expect I will have to go when we get back from our holidays in August or September. Then I might have a basis for comparison.

I tend to be really frugal when we go out to a restaurant. One of our favourites is in the next little town where we can both have a nice dinner for around $20.00. Meat, veggies and either potatoes or rice. Or reallt good pasta. Tomorrow we are going to a father's day brunch that will cost us $20.. each and I will be no more satisfied from that meal than the one at half the price locally...but oh well, it is father's day

Unfortunately, I have not had any business in Canada, so I also have no basis for comparison, but that would be an interesting comparison. My company has a very liberal per diem so I have plenty of choices. It seems most restaraunts like to pile food onto a 12" plate with at least one additional plate of food. Most steaks at restaraunts are 16 oz or bigger, a baked potato is usually a large russet, and so on. 2 pounds of food is common for a restaraunt meal. It used to be, the better the restaraunt, the smaller portions, but that has changed over the past few years. No more Neuvaeu Cuisine.

Well there is one sure basis for comparison. Most restaraunts here offer steaks in 7 oz, 9 or 10 oz and 12. I would say 16 oz is normally not on the menu except in a very select few steak houses.

Here, the 12 oz is considered the 'light eaters" portion.

I don't think Americans are sicker than any other nation. But I think the pharmaceutical companies would like you to think you are.It seems to me there is a new drug available for some new mystery disease every week advertised on tv. I'm no doctor but I for one have never heard of restless leg syndrome. I think the drug companies are trying to to turn us all into a bunch of paranoid hypochondriacs.
