That is an Awsome idea!
I've heard of this before plate before, but never really knew what it was. I think it would bea great tool to help train portion control.
Hardest part of working out, is that first step out the door.

Restart! Fell off the wagon and got ran over AF
Starting weight 298 = highest ever.
278 goal = Achieved! 3-23-18
255 goal = . 234 goal = half way!
218 goal = Lowest ever weight! . 199= Onederland

You can can do the same thing with just a regular 9 inch plate. Divide your plate in half and put veggies on that half. Divide the other half in half and fill one quarter of the plate with your protein and that last quarter with a starch. Easy and much cheaper! Examples at: www.platemethod.com

This is a great method for people who won't count calories.

When you said Portion plate, I was thinking of those my mum used to buy for me when I was a little kid (you know with the dividers and such).

It's a great idea, I like the images to help you see exactly what size the portions should be.

We have a wellness center at work (I joined WW at Work last week) and the people I know (met) who use the portion plate said it works for them. Knowing the me that I am, I would try to stack up within the confines of the dividers...LOL! J/K! Are there directions that say you can't pile the food up past the plate's edge or anything like that?

1 for each 10 pounds lost!

Mini-goal #170 by 8/9/12 trip to Dominican!

So what if I don't do it like everybody else does...
They say, all I am is a crazy dream like it's a bad thing...
