Portion Control – The Key To Weight Control – Is Just A Plate Away

Precise Portions Creates A Prettier Plate

My Plate from USDA isn’t as pretty As Precise Portions but the concept is the same.

Would a plate that’s designed to help you control your portions help?  Maybe not if it looks like the USDA’s My Plate, but what if it had a catchier design?

Precise Portions has created a complete line of attractive dishware that will help you figure how much food equals one portion and does it in a way that won’t make you feel like you’re in grade school.
The plate is also only 10” in diameter so it is smaller tha our standard dinnerware.

Supersizing Has Distorted Our Reality

I actually think this is a nifty idea.  Several years ago, as a society, we were supersized so it’s hard for a lot of folks to know what a portion of meat – or anything else for that matter – looks like.  Even when we carry around a portion control guide that tells us one serving of chicken is the size of a deck of cards, it’s pretty hard to relate that to everything we eat.

What do you think?  If you used these plates would it help you keep your portions under control or prevent you from going back for seconds?  Check out the dinnerware here.
