Diabetics who used a special “diet plate” were 3 times more likely to lose weight than non-plate users.
What is this plate?It is simply a dinner plate with areas marked out for different foods.
130 people with type 2 diabetes were studied. No one was told to make any big lifestyle changes. After 6 months, 17% of them lost 5% or more of their weight. Of those that didn’t use the plate fewer than one person in 20 lost a clinically important amount.
Simply put: The plate helped diabetics reduce their medication, and lose some weight.
The Diet Plate (a British invention) has recently been launched in the US – and, believe it or not, they did not fund this study.
A single plate sells for around $30.
