I went with some work friends out to eat for our first day back to work after Christmas break. I had eaten at the restaurant for lunch many years ago. My recollection was that it was a cheap place to eat but not enough food. The lunch plate is "small" (aka right size) and not flowing over like a lot of other Chinese restaurants.
So after we ordered our food, I discussed how at lunch a person doesn't get a lot to eat here like other Chinese restaurants. When the lunch plates were served, I looked at mine and said, "Wow, that is a lot of food." My friends agreed with me that we had plenty to eat for lunch. I said that the restaurant had closed to remodel and had possibly revamped their portions.
Then, after I was reflecting on that experience last night, I thought maybe it was just me. When I was extremely obese, did that lunch plate not seem or feel like enough? I was used to shoveling food in without enjoying or thinking about the experience. The portions may still be the same as they were years ago. I didn't eat even half of my main entree. The waitress kept trying to convince me to take my lunch leftovers home with me. I only indulge in Chinese food once every few months, so I told her no thank you.
