Portion Right is a set of BPA-free plastic color-coded rings that the sellers say will help you eat the correct-sized portions, resulting in a slimmer you. They claim their method takes calorie counting and guesswork out of dieting, making it easy to lose weight and keep it off.
How Portion Right Works
Portion Right comes with 6 rings of different sizes, along with a chart they call the Simplicity Eating Plan: Green is for Vegetables, Purple for Fruits, Red for Proteins, Blue for Starches, and Orange for Fats.
To use Portion Right, take the food of choice and, as Beyonce once said – put a ring on it. Then, eat whatever foods you like, but only the amount that fits inside the ring. They claim this method is simple to use, easy to understand, and will help you slim down. They state you can eat all day, which will satisfy your cravings and keep the hunger pangs away.
Portion Right Cost:
$22.90 – this is because even though they claim it’s just $10, they charge $7.95 in shipping/handling plus another $4.95 in fees for the “bonus” storage containers, which are also color-coded like the rings.
Portion Right comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, minus those fees, which means you’ll just get back $10 if you return it.
Bottom Line: Will Portion Right Help Me Lose Weight?
The concept of portion control, the science behind Portion Right, appears to be sound; according to an article on Health.com, a 2004 study of 329 overweight people using the technique found that 38% of participants lost 5% or more of body weight and kept it off for 2 years.
However, there’s not one-size-fits-all when it comes to the right portion size – larger people need more to eat than a petite person, so Portion Right’s circles may not be correct for your body mass.
Besides, you don’t necessarily need a plastic ring to help you reign in your portions. For example, according to WebMD, the correct portion of fruits or vegetables is the size of your fist. You can also look at the serving size on the Nutrition Facts label of your food and/or simply use smaller plates at home and not going back for seconds.
