Tighter Portion Control for a Tight Body

Tighter Portion Control for a Tight Body

Staying in shape only works when you combine workouts with good nutrition, and even if you eat healthy foods, you might be eating too many of them.

A way to safeguard your weight is to use tools that battle the supersized meals in our society. Here are some of my favorite tools and two segments from Fox & Friends where I demonstrate how to use them.


1) PORTIONWARE DISH SET, $29.99
*Portionware uses our patented graphi! c system to discreetly describe the size of each bowl.
*Created by a health-​​conscious grad student with a visual arts degree, Portionware’s color-​​coded system measures meals so you don’t have to.
*The color wheel containers start at a half-​​cup size (just right for your most decadent indulgences) and go up to two cups – a sneaky solution for easy portion control loved by the hottest names in health.
