Why you should choose the Diet Plate
How many times have you heard some one say, "if I only knew then, what I know now?" When we are young it really does not matter what friends or family say to us, we're all going to do it anyway, whether it is rising to the challenge of consuming a 32 ounce steak or starving ourselves for a month to lose 7 lbs. Our knowledge of food has increased over the last decade, coupled with public awareness of how larger food companies and supermarkets operate, the healthy eating message is being understood and many people are changing their diets and the diets of their families to make healthier choices.
Great Nutrition is the Foundation of our Good Health
When we are young our bodies respond to what is asked of them, if we are born lucky, then everything works just as it's supposed to and we set about getting on with life, not really paying too much attention to our health as we take it for granted. Then one day, the bathroom scales reflect a weight that you never saw coming, your knees might start to twinge and you may find yourself breathless when walking up a hill. These warning signs give us the impetus to take notice of our health but by then we have already done quite a lot of damage and a lot of us carry on in the same vein probably not realising that, it is within our power to change or not having the desire to.
So for parents reading this, please think about teaching your children what you have learned about good nutrition, if you cook, teach then how, if you garden then please make a vegetable plot with them or plant up some tubs and containers and grow a few vegetables. It is a gift you can give which will set their good health up for life and at least in part, avoid the following diseases; heart, liver, kidney disease, joint problems, blindness, strokes....
The human body needs 2,000 calories per day if you are female and 2,500 calories a day if you are male. If you want to lose weight steadily at 1-3lbs a week, (this depends on the speed of your metabolism) then cutting your calories by 500 a day should effectively do this for you.
Pregnancy and the Diet Plate
The Diet Plate is suitable to use if you are pregnant but overweight too. However you must use the Male version which will effectively give you a safer and slower weight loss while baby is growing. You can use the male Diet Plate when breast feeding too, then when baby is weaned, revert to the female version.
All diets work, most though when analysed reduce the calorie intake in some shape or form and many are not a sustainable way of living. Cutting out food groups, eating only protein, taking pills or using protein drinks will work for a short while but when you return to "real" food then more of ten than not, in fact 96% of the time, the weight just creeps back on and sometimes even more if the metabolism has been affected by a VLCD.
The Diet Plate is different
The Diet Plate
complete weight management system, is a fully calibrated portion control tool. It provides the user with complete freedom of choice, using food groups it determines portion size of protein and starchy carbohydrates, such as curry and rice, or steak and chips. This means that you are not limited to specific meals, you can in fact have any meal you care for as long as the guidelines are followed. Mealtimes are no longer sacrificed as you can eat what you cook for the whole family.
Compared to many Diets and Dietary products, it is unique in how it governs your calories, proving that you do not have to be restricted from the foods you love. It uses clinically proven measurements so that you can visually guide yourself into healthy eating and because the plate is reusable it can incorporated into long term lifestyle changes.
The geometric set up of the plate is applied to carbohydrates, proteins, sauces and cheese, allowing for unlimited Salad and Vegetables.

The full plan is enclosed within the guidelines of the 40 page booklet which comes with every product.
