Finesseurís Stand On The Importance Of Weighing Food Portions
The rising number of cases of obesity the world over have spawned an onslaught of health programs and diet techniques. Kitchenware company Finesseur shares their views on how weighing food portions affects weight loss and dieting results.
In another research study, adult participants were given different portion sizes of pasta, ranging from 500g to 1000g, on different days. The result of the study showed that only half of the subjects noticed the difference in portion sizes. Almost all of them did not report any significant difference in hunger and fullness after consuming even the largest portion. This study confirms that people are inclined to eat more when given bigger food portions. Only a few can actually gauge how much a normal food serving ought to be and eat only the equivalent amount of food.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010, advising the public on the right portioning of food to meet their nutritional needs properly. Supplementary to the guidelines, they have also released MyPlate, a visual aid that helps consumers better understand their nutritional needs and eventually develop healthy eating habits.
Finesseur spokesperson, Allison Montgomery states, "We at Finesseur believe that weighing food portions is a good way to make sure that we are consuming just the right amount of each particular food group. It's not just about overweight people losing weight. It's also about maintaining a nutritionally-balanced diet to stay healthy. Remember that being underweight is just as much of a form of malnutrition as being overweight is. So yes, basically, proper food portioning helps target malnutrition."
In support of their stand on the subject, Finesseur offers a digital food scale that is very useful in weighing food portions. Ms. Montgomery further claims that, "We do not just seek to sell. We want to sell products that are useful and make a positive impact in the lives of our customers. And hopefully, help spread awareness."
The company sells high quality kitchen products that are available both on Amazon and on their own webstore. They also have active social media accounts that help them reach out to consumers. "We're not out to change the world. We just want to help provide the tools for better food preparation and consumption. And if that helps change things, then all the better for everyone," the spokesperson adds.
Finesseur brings fashion design, precise engineering, and top quality craftsmanship together in American kitchens. Finesseur believes kitchen tools should be not only functional, but also inspirational.
