portion sizes

I've just come home from 5 days in the States( supposed to be 3, flew out of Buffalo!) Once again I was struck by the size of the portions you get in restaurants. I always thought I ate a lot, but I could not finish any one of my meals including breakfast!! In one place I ordered soup and garlic bread and they brought me bread to eat while I was waiting for my bread! When my meal came, it was about half a vienna loaf with garlic and cheese. In another place where I was having ribs with 2 sides, I also got 2 pieces of corn bread about 4"x3" each. Those became the next days breakfast. Don't get me wrong, Im no wimp when it comes to food, and it shows,but this is not healthy. I'm sure I'm not alone on this. Agree or disagree?
