No wonder our waistlines are getting wider! The average restaurant meal today is more than four times larger than it was in the 1950s.

A shocking new graphic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention titled “The New (Ab)Normal” shows just how drastically portion sizes in fast food restaurants have been supersized in the last 60 years.

The size of the average burger has tripled, going from just 3.9 ounces in the 1950s to a typical 12 ounces now, according to the CDC.

Burgers are not the only foods to have increased in size, with fries and soft drinks also growing by leaps and bounds.
