Portion Control Plate from Meal Measure

My husband has been struggling to  lose the pounds he have gained over the years after   retiring from the Navy.  He used to worked out almost everyday when he was still in the service but when he retired, it got less and less  because he loves playing with kids and spending  time with us.  As a result, he gained  some weight.  He  is very active in working out now but he is getting frustrated as he  is not getting the result that he wants.  We said that we might change  the  kind of foods that he eats and also  watch out the portion of  every serving of the foods that we have  for every meal.

I am glad that Meal Measure  sent me this Portion Control Plate.  This would help us determine if  the food serving  is what i-s causing to sabotage my husband's weight or not.  I am now using this a lot to measure how much  he can eat with certain foods.

There are 4 portion control areas. 2 for fruits or veggies, 1 for starches, and one for protein.  There is a line  in the middle which represent half a cup.  This is very easy to use as it measures the food right on your plate.  It fits most dinner plates and it is top rack dishwasher safe.

So you see, before having this portion control plate, my husband eats a good size especially if he likes the food that I cook but with this tool, I can control his servings.  Thank you so much Meal Measure for this.

Wow, I needed that! I tend to eat one small serving from one food alone - this will be so helpful to keep my diet healthy and balance throughout the day!

Britney Mills said...

I could totally use one of these! I use a smaller plate to eat from but then I end up getting seconds anyway. I know that we overeat way too much in our house and that is definitely the cause of us needing to lose some pounds. Thanks for the info!

Masshole Mommy said...

Brilliant idea. I am so bad about over eating sometimes and this would keep me eating the right amounts of foods.

Daphne Benosa said...

I didn't know there's such thing as a Portion Plate. I need that in my life! Been trying to do portion control but to no avail :(

AMBER EDWARDS said...

That looks like such a brilliant tool! I could use use a meal measure tool for my own portion control.

Elise said...

That looks like a really easy way to measure food! My husband and I recently decided to count calories for a week as an experiment, and stuffing everything into measuring cups sure wasn't any fun! lol

My Hubs could use this for sure. He usually ends up with more carbs than he wants to be eating. This would just be a friendly reminder to cut down the carbs.

Wow! I love this! What a fantastic idea!!!

nova hedges said...

this is very interesting, the best way to lose weight effectively without too much exercise is cutting the calories you eat.

Lawna Noe said...

I own one of those too and I absolutely love it! I never have to worry about my portions being the incorrect amount!

Nikki said...

What a neat concept! I totally need this to help with my portion control.

mail4rosey said...

Portion plates are such a great idea! I like this!

Jennifer Williams said...

That is such a neat idea, I could use this to teach my kids about portion sizes. It would be a lot easier for them than a scale

mhie@smarlktastes said...

That's a great idea. But It doesn't work for me coz I want to gain weight.

Pam said...

I need one of these. We are all on a diet right now and this would help with portion control.

juliana said...

OMG! I wonder how your husband is faring with his food portion controlled. Ok ba siya? Husband can't do portion control but because he embraced the kind of food that I peat and prepare, he is trim. He goes to the gym twice a week lang 5 hours each.

Chubskulit Rose said...

Juliana, he is determined to get trimmed this year so he is following my rules in the kitchen lol

Anita Breeze said...

That looks like a great little tool. I would get lazy and eat right out of it instead of putting the contents onto a regular plate.

Ashley Gill said...

I personally have tried Meal Measure before and I love it! Helping me eat less one day at a time!

betchai said...

If nothing else, it would help train the eye to recognize proper portions. We have a tendency to go big!
