I was recently asked to test and evaluate the new Diet Plate ! This is a plate that is basically broken down into sections and you put food types into each section. This set also comes with a bowl with lines that show your portion sizes. The ultimate gain of the diet plate/bowl is to basically limit calories by portion control.
You have a section on the plate for meat, salad, vegetables, sauces etc and they say if you don't go over the lines then you cannot help to reduce your weight (they say between one and four pounds a week).
Now here is my problem, firstly you will not lose four pounds a week of fat by using this plate ! The maths just don't add up in terms of calories, it would be better to say one to two pounds a week which is a lot more realistic. My second concern is the cost ! This plate and bowl set is nearly fourty pounds ! That is an awful lot for a plate with lines on it.
My third concern is that you cannot take this plate around with you, so what would you do when you went to a restaurant, had lunch at work or went round your friends for dinner.
Saying that it definitely teaches you more about portion control and that has to be a good thing, the bowl is very enlightening when you put breakfast cereal in, when I was Big Mike I used to fill a bowl to the top whereas a recommended portion is around a quarter of the way so very eye opening.
Anyway it's a nice idea but I do think it is a bit of a gimmick, if it was around ten pounds then I would say go for it but at this price it is definitely a considered purchase.
