A few months back we traveled to Washington, DC to help judge the “Just for Kids State Dinner” recipe contest.
We thought that was the ultimate in cool … until we were invited to attend — AND SPEAK — at the State Dinner in August! Nothing could get better than that.
And then we were told the biggest news of all… Marshall would be introduce the First Lady herself.
Take a look. It’s Marshall gushing and Mrs. Obama enjoying every minute of it.
The Portion Size Me journey just keeps getting better and better!

The Portion Size Me family had a blast at Taste of Atlanta last week. Marshall was at his best talking to kids and families about simple ways to be healthier.
If we met you there in person, leave us a comment saying hello. If you missed it (or don’t leave near Atlanta), take a look at the videos below to see what Marshall cooked up.
Our next stop is The Ricki Lake Show! We’ll be on Tuesday’s show. Use this link to find out when it plays in your area (click on “Where to

If you’ve heard anything about Portion Size Me, then you probably know it’s not about dieting. We aren’t focused on calories and we aren’t trying to be skinny.

Goal 1: Eat as many real foods as possible, and from a

Finding The Good
We’ve just started our cross-country trek, but we’re already experiencing — and learning — so much.
For instance, Marshall cut through a tendon on his thumb and had to have it surgically repaired. He now sports a soft cast all the way up to his elbow and covering all but his ring and pinky finger. The cast is soft, but it’s also large and bulky.
But while the accident was not a good thing, we’ve seen some really great things happen as

I observed a wonderful thing while at the Today Show in NYC. The producers, camera crew, sound crew, lighting crew, and hosts moved like clockwork in the surprisingly small studio at Rockefeller Plaza. Everybody had his or her job, did it well, and they trusted that others would do their jobs well, too.
Ann Curry, who seems soft and intense on camera, was quite bubbly and danced her way between camera men from set to set. She was relaxed and not stressed by the
