We blame ourselves, but we forget to ask if we even have the right tools at our disposal

Having an actual strategy for losing weight is something commonly overlooked by many dieters says Dr. Myo Nwe, co-founder of the Ace Medical Weight Loss Center in South Carolina and co-author of “Fat-Me-Not: Weight Loss Diet of the Future.” Dr. Nwe stresses the necessity of having a plan built around real goals if someone is trying to lose weight. She said simply trying to eat less and exercise more is just dieting in the dark.

According to Dr. Nwe, far too many people approach weight loss with a random, loosely-defined concept of how to proceed. “Eating less and exercising more is something we’ve all heard, but true weight management requires a bit more detail,” Dr. Nwe explains.

Dr. Nwe encourages patients in her practice to follow a more specific plan, one that involves goals and a calendar, and is based in science. “When you follow an unspecified strategy, you’re far less likely to succeed,” Nwe explains. “It’s so much easier to cheat when you haven’t really set any parameters.”

An internal medicine specialist, Dr. Nwe co-created a successful weight loss system built around portion control called the Slimplate System. It utilizes portion plates, bowls, and cups, along with other tools. Together, the system is used as a part of a four-month weight loss program to gradually guide users toward a more proper food intake.

“We specifically designed the Slimplate System to have an accompanying weight loss strategy built around how people eat,” New says. “We wanted a clear, free program. That’s always vital to meeting true weight loss goals.” One can join the free online weight loss program at

Dr. Nwe takes an all-encompassing approach to weight management with her clients. She says it is important to comprehend both the physiology and psychology involved with weight loss. “People fail in remarkably similar patterns, which they often repeat again and again,” Nwe says. “We blame ourselves, but we forget to ask if we even have the right tools at our disposal.”

Dr. Nwe says the Slimplate System has received high marks from users for the bone china quality, but she believes the greater asset is the progressive, responsive nature of the weight loss strategy. “It’s a program that works with people instead of against their nature,” she explains. “It all goes back to understanding how and why people eat the way they do.”
