Thanks once again for your kind reply.
One quick question, could you please guide me and let me know how I can get the similar qq plot(log-log scale) that I get from qqcomp, from qqPlotCensored function(It is similar to qqPlot, and available in EnvStats http://www.inside-r.org/node/218933 ).
Thanks a lot.

They never arrived, but your data weren't actually needed. The crucial missing information was the packages used. This will do:
> library(EnvStats); library(fitdistrplus)

> fitln <- fitdist(serving,"lnorm",method="mle")
The difference is quite clearly that qqPlot is doing a QQ-plot of log(serving) vs. normal quantiles, whereas qqcomp plots serving itself against lognormal quantiles. So the former is pretty much equal to the latter on a log-log scale.
