A family pack is available as are add-on pieces like dieting guides and portion controlling bowls. The Diet Plate shows pictures of the foods allowed in each section of the plate.

The Diet Plate is a melamine serving plate divided into four sections. Section sizes depend on the type of Diet Plate – male, female or child. A guide is included with the Diet Plate to help the dieter best use the weight loss tool. The outrageous design is the worst part of the Diet Plate. There is a quote around the outside of the plate that reads, “You can do it. Portion Control. Exercise Daily. Diet With a Friend. Think Low Fat.” The Diet Plate is light blue and shows a variety of cartoon-style fruits, vegetables, proteins, starches and other foods. The dieter is supposed to use these pictures and the guide as a tool, but what happens when the dieter wants to eat out at a restaurant or on the go. Carrying the Diet Plate can be a bit embarrassing for some dieters.
The male version of the Diet Plate allows larger portion sizes. Men can eat more than women and lose weight. The children’s Diet Plate is called the Magic Plate. This design is not for weight loss, but rather for parents who want to ensure their child is getting proper nutrition.
The Diet Plate is sold in the United Kingdom, not in the United States. Orders can be shipped to the United States, but there is no FAQs section explaining the additional charge for international shipping.

The Diet Plate is a unique idea. If the dieter follows the guidebook, they will lose weight eating proper portions of healthy foods. The trouble is that food stacks high and the dieter must be strict with portion-control to lose weight with the Diet Plate. We would like to see an “on-the-go” version so dieters can use it while eating out.
