Before you post a reply saying that you are overweight or that you want to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator

I was just writing some advice to someone and I remembered something. I was watching a talk show one morning and I saw this incredibly skinny lady they had on. She had "invented" a really cool diet tool. It was a plate that was painted. It showed exactly how much each space on the plate should be used for what foods. Like 1/4 meat, 1/4 starch and other types of foods, and 2/4 vegetables. Before she patented this plate (which she had made) she used it for 3 meals, had no seconds, and lost 50 pounds! I think that would be a great thing to do. If you don't want to put much effort into it, just by a cheap (fairly small) clear plate, and on the bottom (opposite eating side) draw on the portions that I listed above and use it for a week for every meal, and let me know how it turned out!
