– Many diet plans often recommend eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, but a study by the School of Public Health at the University of Alabama found that increased fruit and vegetable consumption had a near-zero effect on weight loss. Now experts are suggesting that the addition of healthy foods must be combine with some form of portion control to trigger measurable weight loss.
SlimPlate System is a method of monitoring portions and controlling how much is consumed, simply by using a specially-designed set of dinnerware that facilitates healthy weight loss. With a four-stage plan, each with its own special dinner plate and other accessories, SlimPlate system can trigger weight loss of 14 lbs – 22 lbs in just three months, all through careful portion control.
A spokesman for SlimPlate System says, "It's important that the public realise that simply substituting or adding fruits and vegetables into their diet will not facilitate healthy weight loss – the new study confirms it. Those who wish to lose weight in a healthy way must control the amount of food that they're consuming, whether it's a vegetable-laden lunch or an after-dinner dessert. SlimPlate System is an easy method, with simple plates and cups that can be used to measure and control portions, contributing to instant and sustained weight loss."
Those using the SlimPlate System do not need to overhaul their diet and eat nothing but home-grown vegetables or organic fruit – they can eat as they always have, whilst paying careful attention to portions and how much of each food group they consume in a certain meal. Whilst eating vegetables and fruit every day is recommended by all health experts, it's important that the portions are adhered to in order to see the desired weight loss results.
Known as 'weight loss in a box', SlimPlate System requires no subscriptions or membership fees – all dieters need to do in order to trigger their weight loss is follow the plan using the plates, cups, bowls and other portion containers provided. Each step of the four-stage plan is intended to boost weight loss, while the final step is a maintenance plate for those who have reached their target weight and want to stay there.
With one-third of the world's population now classed as overweight, it's vital that the public are receiving the right messages about weight loss. Simply adding huge amounts of vegetables into a meal plan is not enough to kick-start the weight loss that many people desire. SlimPlate System is a proven method of portion control that's been accredited by physicians – if the study's findings are correct, and we need to be more strict with our portions, the portion control plates could prove a vital tool in the fight against obesity.
