The Plate DIet as shown on ACA

Postby aramat1980 » Tue Mar 13, 2007 12:49 pm

I watched this on ACA last night, this lady has lost over 100kg by taking a plate everywhere with her. No matter what she eats, she gets the serving put onto this plate and it is not allowed outside of the inner circle of the plate - have a look on the website.
I think it's a great idea!!! It has certainly worked for her

I watched that as well - she even travelled overseas with her plate and ate every meal off of it. If it works for her then good on her!

I think that it depends on what you put on the plate. If you filled inside the circle with chocolate, or in my case, icecream (yum) I think that it would kind of defeat the purpose :lol:

She would have to find a dunny somewhere I spose!!! Why not just use a plate from the shop where she is buying her lunch or whatever and say I want a half serve???? Most the time whenever I go out I have a half serve but then I have dessert. I worked it out, if you have a entree size meal then you have room for a full serve of dessert.......hahaha!!! Mind you mum and I went to lunch on Friday and we shared a cajun chicken burger. I felt good afterwards because I wasnt stuffed but it was just enough to take the "I'm feeling hungry feeling" away. And I didnt feel hungry again until tea that night. There is no way I would have been able to eat much more than what I did eat anyway. And this way lunch was only $18 for both of us!!!! We had a drink each as well. So I offered to pay for that lunch......hahahaha!!!

A good visual way to watch portion control, easier than weighing everything I guess

100kg is excellent good for her. It's worked for her bringing a plate with her everywhere she goes to eat I would't do it I think it would be very un hygenic putting a dirty plate in her bag or going to the toilets & washing it.

I wonder if carrying the plate around with her was a constant, tangiable reminder of her quest to lose the weight? It's not just an intangiable goal in her mind.

Apart from the portion control, I think that could be quite a helpful reminder.

That's actually a really good point. I do manager coaching as part of my job. Often they rationally know that they would like to do things differently but sometimes they need something to remind them. So that when they are going about their day to day activities they remember that they want to respond to the situations in a different way. A tangible reminder like a strategically placed post it note or an elastic band around their folder can be really helpful.

my father in law recently did acupuncture to try to quit smoking. part of the after effects of it was that they had to put a rubber band around their wrist. when they felt the need to have a smoke they have to flick themselves with the rubber band. strange i know but it works. especially in social situations - a lot of smokers dont need to flick themselves as just having the band there reminds them about it.
