(A major concern and health problem of the 21st century)


This is a very common promise made by many diets, also planning your meals is
essential, exercise, etc. But a plate that might help you lose weight is unheard of,
how can that be?:

many dietitians recognize the fact that eating slowly, can help you getting satisfied by
eating less food. Basically what happens is that the human body has two "sensors" to
tell you that you have eaten enough, one in the stomach and one in the brain.

The sensor in the stomach gives a sensation of fullness that sometimes is even
uncomfortable, but if you are hungry enough you will override that sensor.

The sensor in your brain is more effective. Have you ever tried to eat when you are not
hungry?. Unfortunately , this sensor takes time to get activated, nutrients have to be
absorbed on the walls of the stomach, carried by the blood to the brain and activate the

First of all relax and drink a glass of water before eating

Have a light soup with few calories

hour and can be handled with your bare hands by the rim (The rim does not get hot for
easy handling with your bare hands

It is very difficult to fight against obesity when you feel deprived of the pleasure of eating

Can HotSmart plates help?... No promises here, do not even try it without mentally
rehearsing for at least 21 days, read "Psycho-Cybernetics" by Maxwell Maltz (Ooops...wasn't
I selling plates here?).

  1. Obesity is certainly a growing problem. Over the last 20 years, obesity in adults has rocketed with more than 60% in men and 50% in women. And the signs are that this problem won't improve. In children aged between 2 and 15, 28% of girls and 22% of boys are overweight.
