Who comes up with 'serving sizes'?  
Bought a bag of pistachio nuts yesterday. Yummm! Noticed on the label that there are *16* servings in the bag. *snort* Not hardly.

What world do the people who come up with serving sizes live in? It's like saying that a pint of Ben & Jerry's serves 4.

People who are aiming for calorie counts
Ever look at a can of "zero calorie" or "one calorie" soda? Often it will be listed as containing something like "1.7 servings", so they can squeak in under the wire. The tiny servings dodge is one thing, but the non-integral ones are completely bogus. 1 and two-thirds cookies is a serving? Please.

Bein' submissive, I thought that meant I eat the B&J and THEN serve four... not that ...
