Portion Perfection Kit

January 2, 2016



The Portion Perfection Kit was created by Amanda Clark, an Australian Advanced Accredited Practicing Dietitian Nutritionist (Adv APD). Her best-selling book Portion Perfection International, offers a visual weight control plan which stands alone in its own right or it can be used in combination with the Portion Perfection kit which includes a plate, bowl and four-week weight loss menu plan. The center of the plate is designed to hold approximately 350 calories when the intended foods are plated within the margins marked for each food group. The inside of the bowl is also marked to identify ¼ cup, ½ cup, ¾ cup, 1 cup and 1 ½ cup portion sizes. This comprehensive one-of-a-kind four week menu plan can be tailored to meet the needs of the whole family. Menus are set at 1300 calories for women and 1600 calories for men (and 900 calories for people who have undergone bariatric surgery). nd four week menu plan can be tailored to meet the needs of the whole family. Menus are set at 1300 calories for women and 1600 calories for men (and 900 calories for people who have undergone bariatric surgery).

Registered Dietitians may find this kit useful when teaching basic portion control and menu planning to clients. The kit offers a flip book containing four weeks of 1300-calorie menus, which are divided into three 300 to 350 calorie meals and three 100 calorie snacks. It features a weekly recipe index sorted by day of the week and page number for easy reference. The 900- and 1600-calorie menus reflect the same meal components with portion sizes adjusted accordingly to fit within calorie limits. I found the kit’s recipes to be nutritionally balanced, well-organized and realistically depicted in full-color imagery. The plate and bowl may be helpful in combating portion distortion if used consistently by the client. I recommend paying close attention to recipe oven temperatures, which are noted using both the Celsius and Farenheit scales.  Also, be aware that the plate and bowl are both made of melamine and therefore not suitable for microwave heating or for serving very high temperature foods such as fried food or boiling soup. It also offers a one-of-a-kind four week menu plan can be tailored to meet the needs of the whole family.  Menus are set at 1300 calories for women and 1600 calories for men (and 900 calories for people who have undergone bariatric surgery).
