The Diet Plate and losing weight
Paying attention now to what we eat and how much we eat will reap dividends as we grow older. Those who have not paid attention and have adopted a less healthy approach to diet and nutrition are most likely to reap the negative sides of health.
Good nutrition is the foundation of our wellbeing, a healthy weight/height ratio is ideal for a prolonged and happy life. It gives us the mobility to be active and enjoy the day and it gives us that “feel good factor” like the sun on our faces after a long winter.
Paying attention now to what we eat and how much we eat will reap dividends as we grow older. Those who have not paid attention and have adopted a less healthy approach to diet and nutrition are most likely to reap the negative sides of health, as most co-morbidities of obesity is; heart disease, cancer, joint pain, strokes, Type 2 diabetes and general demise of being.
With many governments putting the onus on the individual to prevent these illnesses, it is essential that you look to your own lifestyle and ask yourself if you exercise enough, if you eat right, if you are over weight or if you drink and smoke to much? And, while life is not all about being angelic and having no vices, maybe heeding a few health tips now will prevent the unthinkable from happening?
The Diet Plate now clinically proven to help control Type 2 diabetes was created by Kay Illingworth, who over a number of years grew from a healthy 70kg to an unhealthy 125kg. Finding it difficult to continually monitor her calorific intake, Kay had a stroke of genius one evening and calibrated a dinner plate and bowl. The effect was staggering! Kay lost 42kg in six months continual use of the system, without changing her diet or her cooking methods.
Kay says, “I thought if I could just cook what I normally cook for the whole family and serve it directly onto my special plate, stick like glue to the measurements because I knew they represented a certain amount of calories - I would be losing weight literally at the glance of an eye! Using the plate astounded me how much I over ate, my brain told me I had a 7ounce portion on the plate, the scales told me it weighed 16 ounces and my dietitian had told me I was allowed 4 ounces. I was trying to lose weight and eat healthily but was still eating 4 times the amount I was allowed!”
The plate and bowl are made from fine earthenware, they are microwave and dishwasher proof and a tangible, durable weight loss system. Each comes with a 40 page instruction booklets and extra help is offered on www.thedietplate.com for those who would like support.
