Precise Portions Nutrition Control System

I’m so proud. All my friends have lost weight over the past month. From counting calories with MyFitness Pal app to Weight Watchers points, I’ve seen everything from five to 20lbs melt away. On other people. Me? Still trying to lose that 10lbs I’ve been complaining about for four years.

My problem isn’t exercise. I workout five times a week for an hour each day. My problem is portion control. And since diet is 80% of your weight loss plan and exercise is only 20%, you can see my dilemma.

The Precise Portions Nutrition control system is made just for people like me – those who eat like they've been alone on desert island for a month and this is the first meal they've seen. Yes, I eat that much. Serving sizes are just suggestions, right?

The 'Plate Method' of controlling how much we eat was conceived in Sweden, and brought to the U.S. by nutritionists at the University of Utah. With this basic science in mind, Precise Portions teaches us eat less.

With their signature range of stylish porcelain China dishware, they’re actually bringing artistic designer looks to the world of portion control. Microwave- and dishwasher-safe and lead- and cadmium-free, these attractive dishes trick everyone into thinking they’re just lovely vine designs. You know these patterns are actually separating the plates, bowls and glasses into the right portions for each meal. Just choose the foods, place them on the appropriate section of the plate and eat within the lines. Those are your portions.

Different items like the bowls and glasses have differently sized portions based on what you’re eating or drinking. For instance, choose the lower line on the glass for juice, the higher one for low fat milk (shown above).

The Complete Lifestyle Starter Set is a great way to begin. Each one-setting set contains one FOCUS plate (with dietary guidelines printed right on the plate itself) and a set of ones sans writing - a 10" LIFE-style rim plate, a Side Plate for bread or dessert, an 18 oz. Cereal/Soup Bowl, 8 oz. Snack Bowl and 10 oz. Beverage Glass.

When you need to read up on what you should and (shouldn’t) be eating, refer to their new Eat & Learn Nutrition Discs. On one side are simple nutrition guidelines to create low calorie nutrient rich meals. On the other is a daily menu planning aid to help you keep track of your daily intake.

Now portion control is easier. I love setting the table because I know I'm setting myself up for weight loss success.
