There are so many theories on the best way to lose weight. One that has been proven to have an impact is portion control. It sounds easy enough in theory, but in reality it can be a huge pain trying to estimate, or even worse, actually weight out your food. Some people do go to this much trouble, but the majority do not, at least not for very long. If you are among the frustrated wannabe-portion controllers then you may now have another option.
Slimware is a line of stylish plates designed to give you a subtle reminder about the amount of each food group you should be consuming at each meal. Every plate design has three different sized patterns on it. The largest area is meant to be for the vegetables, the medium for the carbs and the smallest for the protein. Of course it is not as exact as weighing your food, but offers a decent reminder.
The great part is that your dinner guests never have to know the secret behind the design. The plates are also dishwasher safe, shatterproof and come in a variety of patterns. You can see some of the Slimware designs here.
