Meal Measure Review !
Wife, mother of 3 children and former lunch room attendant Patty Cocchiarella designed Meal Measure which is a plate used for portion control whether you use it for weight loss or diabetes or for even eating healthy.
Did you know that many hospitals, clinics and stores around the country are selling this It cool product and it's been featured on the Today Show and is a 3x Editor's Pick on RealAge.com now how awesome is that?!
It's also used in many healthcare facilities for health and wellness programs around the country whether for weight loss challenges at clinics used by dietitians and nutritionists to help you get on the right track.
As I was growing up one thing I never thought about was portion control when it came to food.
You go to restaurants and they just serve you these plate piled high with food and we feel the need to eat it all.
Thank god for takeout containers in restaurants though to save half of your meal for later or even the next day.
When I started with my weight loss journey two years ago I portioned out my food pretty much all of the time and it has gotten me pretty awesome weight loss results that I'm completely proud of!
At times though it can be hectic with the counting out the serving size of such foods such as crackers, cookies and the measuring for oats, milk and what not!
You've got a counter full of the ingredients you need to prep your meal and your pouring contents into a measuring cup and the dog is barking in the background, the baby attached to your hip is screaming for a bottle and your toddler is grabbing at your leg wanting cookies and before you know it all of your ingredients are on the floor! Oh no big mess to clean up!
