The Balanced Plate is another option to help clients visualize how to build a plate when they sit down to a meal.

Just like the Hand-Sized Portions System, keep in mind that the Balanced Plate is just a starting point - a tool to help somene learn how to build a balanced meal. It's not magic.

Make adjustments based on hunger, fullness, preferences, goals , overall activity level, and most importantly, RESULTS. Start with the basic template and then adjust portions at ay time using outcome-based decision making.

If you want to fast-track your results and / or you're looking for something more individualized - based on YOUR personal details, activity level (both daily movement and purposeful exercise) and your goals -  you may consider purchasing a Moxie Custom Nutrition Template & Eating Guide.
