Who ever thought that the best way to get healthy might be through buying tableware designed with staying fit in mind? These simple portion control plates, bowls and cups have a plus sign on the one side and a minus on the other, with correspondingly regular and small volumes depending on your portion needs for a particular meal.
Not quite clever enough for you? This offbeat tableware by Soo Kwon also stacks in two different ways to reflect its functions: stacked with the plus side up the set forms a short and fat stack but stacked with the minus side up the set becomes tall and skinny, a conceptual reflection of your fitness (or rather, weight control) goals.
While the specific portions might not be custom-catered to each diet and other design issues could be cited, this minimalist tableware seems a fair bit more aesthetically acceptable than the plastic-clad weight loss foods found in your local grocery store freezer isle.
The design, naturally, isn’t fool-proof. There’s nothing to stop you from filling as many of the vessels as you feel like at any given time. It’s not like one of those dog portion control dishes that make it hard to eat around, slowing you down. Would those work for humans? A question to ponder, we guess.
More from the designer
“Dining today is all about self-management. The plus minus(Â±) system introduces both a simple and inexpensive solution to lower the diner’s stress while helping them to attain better health. Each bowls and dishes provide two different portions, small portion on one side or flip the bowl for regular portion on the other side. It also plays gesture with stacking, with the small portions, the whole dinnerware become tall and skinny and other side around, the set becomes shorter and fatter.”
