Before Losing Weight

We designed Livliga to help people live healthier lives. Not only does it help us eat healthier and in right-sized portions, but it can also help us lose weight.

When I was designing the dishware, I initially created hand-painted prototypes at the local Color Me Mine pottery studio. As we tested the prototypes at home, we found that we were losing weight. Just by right-sizing our portions we were losing weight. We weren't on a diet but we were eating much healthier and using standard serving sizes, the ones I  built into our plates and dishes. I lost over 50 pounds and my husband has now lost over 60 pounds. Our daughter, who was living with us at the time lost 25 pounds. All we were doing was using Livliga dinnerware.

Livliga now has 3 patents and 3 national awards. We are unique because we have built in a lot of psychology as well as simple measurement into each dish. Below are our tips on how Livliga can help you lose weight.

10 Tips on how Livliga can help you lose weight

1.Reminds you of a balanced meal—the circles on each plate signify one of the food groups that make up a balanced meal to make sure we are mindful of what we eat as well as how much we should eat

2. Design helps make specific portion sizes look plentiful—every dish has a specific size to make the food placed in or on it look plentiful so you don't feel like you are serving up less than you should.

3. Shape of each piece of Livliga helps make measured food look like enough so you don’t feel deprived or denied--take a look at our plate of food compared to the typical dish used today.

4. Colors support taking time and enjoying a meal—we have developed a Livliga palette of non-trigger colors that includes hues of blue since blue has been proven to be a appetite suppressing color helping you feel fuller faster on right-sized amounts of food.

5. Provides measurement built right into the plate—and we always provide a map on the back of each dinner plate to show you what those measurements are for each dish—the serving sizes are according to the USDA MyPlate.gov for which Livliga is a National Strategic Partner.
