Get Slim by Reducing Your Portion Size with These Stylish Plates

If you are struggling to lose weight the problem might be right in front of you; your plate.  Over the past 30 years our plates have ballooned from 9″ to 12″ today.  We pile on our portions so that our food fills every square inch.  What we don’t realize is with the larger portions comes more calories and added inches to our mid sections.

But now you can get slimmer in style with Slim & Sage dinner plates.  The American College of Cardiology estimated that 90% of weight loss is achieved by reducing food intake, while just 10% is achieved by increasing physical activity. Slim & Sage’s elegant dinner plates are 9” in diameter which encourages you to eat less. According to the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at New York University, American portion size exceeds the FDA’s service size guidelines by 200 or more calories per portion.

Physical exercise alone does not help you lose weight. You must consume fewer calories if you are serious about weight loss. The National Institutes of Health recommend replacing larger plates with smaller plates to eat less. “People eat what’s put in front of them,” they say. “Try serving food on smaller plates if you’d like to eat less.”

According to a recent study by switching your plates from 12″ to 9″  may help result in up to an additional 11% fewer calories, for a total of up to 59% fewer calories consumed, or up to 435 fewer calories per meal. This calorie cut may translate to roughly 23 pounds over 3 months if the plate is used two meals per day.

Slim & Sage plates use this nutritional science in their unique, dazzling, European geometric shape pattered plates. They are designed so that you use one-quarter of the plate for lean protein, one-quarter for whole grains, and one-half for vegetables.  Slim & Sage plates make the perfect spring wedding shower gift or for Mom’s dinner party with the girlfriends.

Slim & Sage is the result of a collaboration between European designers, leading health care experts at Stanford, and Slim & Sage’s founder, Tatyana Beldock, a Harvard Business School graduate with extensive health care experience and a passion for design. Slim & Sage pledges to donate 2% of its profits toward childhood obesity research.
