29 Portion Control Innovations

From Weight-Loss Dishware to Spread-Rationing Contraptions

— July 15, 2014 — Lifestyle
This collection of portion control innovations shows the direction people are taking when it comes to leading healthier lives. Fad diets and miracle weight loss pills may still reign in many parts of the world, yet the idea of giving up something for an indefinite period of time often results in losing motivation and gaining even more weight in the end.

With the help of these portion control innovations, designers encourage people to simple eat and drink in moderation. Whether that is through plates the force people to consume a limited amount of food or infographics that visualize in other ways what a proper portion is, there are a growing number of ways to stay on track.
