Richmond, VA (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
On Monday, June 6th, the founders of Precise Portions (http://www.preciseportions.com), Ed and Ann-Marie Stephens, were in the studio of CBS/KCAL 9 in Los Angeles to discuss the new USDA guidelines and how the Precise Portions dinnerware – plates, bowls and glasses – comply and even goes one step further in portion control and making it easy for people to eat well.
Precise Portions is a revolutionary set of dinnerware – plates, bowls and glasses, which take the guesswork out of eating well and being healthy. It not only complies with the new USDA guidelines, it enriches them and takes it one step further with controlling the portion of food and drinks even on the go with their lunch plate suitable for adults and kids alike.
“Part of our model is we make it easy to eat well and eat healthy and that’s why we came up with the full set, it’s almost like a do-it-yourself kind of kit for eating healthy,” said Ed Stephens, co-founder of Precise Portions.
“The dinnerware is family friendly and guest friendly with a beautiful design of the plates, bowls, and glasses and even a lunch plate for lunch on-the-go – works for adults and kids alike! Just follow the lines – so you can get started right away, it is that easy!” said Ann-Marie Stephens, co-founder of Precise Portions. “It has been a lifelong dream to work in nutrition and health and help our family members with diabetes, it’s where it all started, we are committed to portion control and portion control works!”
The purpose of MyPlate initiative and the new USDA guidelines was to simplify the process and to make it easier for people to understand how to eat well. The visual marks on MyPlate - where to put what food - would indeed help most people. Precise Portions dinnerware provides a very practical way of accommodating these guidelines and more importantly, it goes a step further to ensure that meals are personalized for a person’s lifestyle; their physical activity level. The recommended servings of starchy and non-starchy vegetables as well as protein (meat or meat substitute) match. The experts from Precise Portions also recommend fruit with every meal and in the portion control system there are bowls designed specifically to help with that. And last but not least – glasses to help with the control of calories we drink every day.
