portion size through history

The size of food portions and plates in more than four dozen depictions of the Last Supper -- painted over the past 1,000 years -- have gradually gotten bigger and bigger, according to a Cornell study published in The International Journal of Obesity (April, online March 23), a peer-reviewed publication.


"We took the 52 most famous paintings of the Last Supper and analyzed the size of the entrées, bread and plates, relative to the size of Christ's head," said Wansink.

Eh, yeah... but years ago people were shorter than they are today. Maybe there's a connection.

So the study is based on some artists perception of how someone else may have ate many centuries earlier...sounds like a sound basis for a theory.....NOT.
