Ever heard of portion distortion? This is when over-sized portions of food start to look normal to you. The result is that people will eat whatever is on their plate without thinking about the number of serving sizes that are actually in front of them. Portion sizes that once would have been considered far too big to eat in one sitting, are now seen as normal. From store-bought muffins, to soft drinks and to pasta entrées at restaurants, portion sizes have increased over the last 20 years. Bigger portions mean more calories, and the result is bigger waistlines.
For the past 3 decades, people have seen portion sizes increase in restaurants and have re-defined value as the amount of food they see on their plate. This has also become the norm when preparing and serving meals at home. The habit of eating too much food, or more specifically, the wrong ratios of food, has led to an increase in obesity and its related health conditions. We now understand the correlation between how much and what we eat with the rise in obesity, diabetes, heart disease & stroke.
To address this, Portions Master has created a solution that trains people to eat healthier portion sizes by showing them how much food and the ratios of food they should be eating at every meal. The Portions Master approach has simplified and revolutionized how people achieve and maintain their weight goals; reducing their overall risk of health complications due to over-eating. This unique plating system can be used by people who need to control existing health conditions, or to lose weight.
Long-lasting results are achieved by seeing the correct amount of food on your plate and reconditioning your eating habits. It is safe and easy for the entire family to use and develop healthy eating habits, significantly reducing their future risk factors for diabetes and obesity.
Instead of calculating the amount of calorie intake per food item, each Portions Master plate is designed to provide the correct volume of food for each food category. This system was developed in collaboration with nutritionists, dieticians, and health care professionals.
Six different plates allow users to move gradually toward their weight goal or maintain their current weight. The experience leads to healthier eating habits.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, food portions have increased both in restaurants and home dining.
Awareness of proper portion size is a safe and effective way to maintain optimum health, avoid weight gain, and reduce the risk of developing health conditions.
Simple to use. No more weighing your food. No counting calories. You can eat the same foods as everyone else in your household.
