PortionPals

A healthy gadget that keeps your portion sizes diet friendly.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

PortionPals are small discs that keep your portions in check. Seen in O magazine as well as in the LA Times and Women's World, PortionPals are a healthy-eating must-have.

Each of the five plastic discs, which also double as a cutting board, shows you what one serving of poultry, meat, fish, sides and dessert looks like.

Here's how it works: Choose what you are about to eat, cut your food in the proper portions using the appropriate PortionPals plate and dive in!

Each disc is color-coded for easy visual accessibility and each is also dishwasher safe, microwavable and flexible. Plus, each PortionPals disc gives you a height restriction so that you're not stacking food too high and canceling out your healthy-eating intentions.

  • Dishwasher-safe and microwavable
  • Helps keep portions in check

DIET and NUTRITION

PortionPals come in five distinct discs that provide a visual measurement for you to keep your portions appropriately sized. Each disc, which measures poultry, meat, fish, sides or dessert, is color-coded, flexible and can also be used as a cutting board.

For use, here's an example: Place a piece of cooked chicken breast on a the rectangle of the poultry-designated PortionPals. If the chicken breast fits perfectly in the rectangle, you're good to start eating. If the chicken covers over the margins, then you simply trim away at the chicken until it fits into the PortionPals.

Keep in mind that PortionPals tell you how much to eat, not what to eat. You must make the appropriate choices when it comes to selecting lean, low-fat and low-calorie foods.

There are no exercise recommendations.

CONCLUSION

PortionPals are a handy gadget for those who need a bit of help with figuring out what is an appropriate portion size. Each fun package comes with five dishwasher-safe and microwavable discs; one for poultry, meat, fish, sides and dessert.

As long as you adhere to the height requirements and do not stack food, PortionPals are an easy-to-use and effective tool to monitor portion sizes.
