Who would even think that these stylish plates help reduce caloric intake by 59 percent?! Since research suggests that 90 percent of weight loss is achieved simply by eating less, it makes sense to eat off smaller plates. That's the logic behind these Slim and Sage plates ($99 for four), which were also included in our POPSUGAR Neiman Marcus special edition Must Have box.
When the designer, Tatyana Daniels Beldock, was interviewed by POPSUGAR Home, she said, "People clean their plates an astonishing 91 percent of the time." These plates are nine inches in diameter (just as they were in the 1960s), so even if you are a member of the clean plate club, you'll consume fewer calories than if you use a regular 12-inch plate. Aside from a smaller size, they include a geometric pattern that breaks your meal into four parts: one quarter is for whole grains, one quarter is for protein, and one half is for vegetables. A smaller plate means loading less food onto it, and the pattern reminds you to eat more low-cal veggies. A weight-loss tool never looked so chic!
