These bowls are a true blessing to all of us that are watching our weight and utilizing portion control in our diets.
I love mine. I use them daily -- no kidding. It's so easy to portion out my morning cereal (which is so easy to underestimate!) and milk. I use it for soup, stew, chili... fruit and my beloved Peach Mango Sherbet!
I don't have to wash (or eat out of) the measuring cups now.
You can't truly know just how much you're eating unless you measure everything -- and, let's face it, that's just not always possible. Who wants to stuff lasagna in a measuring cup and then toss it into a bowl or onto a plate? I don't.
Now... I don't have to do that. Just put it into the Measure Up Bowl and it's good to go!
From The Website: The Measure Up Bowls are a solution to portion control at every meal. The Classic is for soups, pastas, rice, cereal, chili, anything you eat out of a bowl. The pre-measured portions on the classic are 1/2 cup to 2 cups. The small Measure Up Bowl is perfect for high fat, calorie dense foods such as chips, ice cream, nuts, and granola. These foods should be enjoyed in a smaller serving size. The pre-measured markings on the interior of the small Measure Up Bowl are 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, and 3/4 of a cup.
The measurements marked are perfect. They are clear and easy to read -- no guess work here!
The bowls are made of microwave and dishwasher-safe porcelain. Easy to use and easy to clean up.
Heather, the creator of the Measure Up Bowls, was an old hand at dieting. After the birth of her second child, she decided to change her lifestyle and drop the fad diets and the pounds she'd gained.
In her own words: One morning while measuring out my cereal, I though this would be so much easier if the measurements for what I was eating was inside of the bowl I was eating out of. I wouldn't need to wash or store the measuring cups. It would eliminate a whole step. I looked for it and could not find it anywhere. So I started developing the Measure Up Bowl.
That was over two years ago, and with hard work and the loving support of my family and friends I am proud to say the Measure Up Bowl is here! I am even prouder to say it took me about 11 months to lose 80 pounds and I have kept it off for over two years. I continue to experiment with different recipes, exercise routines, and fitness strategies. I am developing many other Measure Up healthy lifestyle tools such as a Measure Up Journal, a plastic children's Measure Up Bowl, and many other fun and exciting products soon to be announced. I have taken every step in this weight loss journey and sincerely hope my experiences and products help you no matter what your goals are.
Heather also developed the The Measure Up Journal, a three-month portion control journal. It helps you track food and beverage intake and measures Calories, Fat, Protein and Carbs for each item. Use with your Measure Up Bowls as a great diet tool! We all know that journaling has been proven to aid in reaching fitness goals!
