About Us

The marketing world has made food our enemy. Even small kids fear eating food just to avoid gaining weight. This is how big organizations program little minds.

Food is and always will be our friend. It’s not about what we eat. It’s about how much we eat, portion control & daily meal planning .

We talk more about it  portion control diet plan for weight loss  in our free webinar.

Our Story

We are Ed and Ann-Marie Stephens.

Like many Americans both of our families were stricken with Type 2 diabetes which we managed by diabetic portion control & diabetes meal planning . We have seen firsthand how challenging it can be to enjoy a healthy lifestyle while trying to cope with a disease that degrades quality of life. We spent years compiling information, and doing everything they could to help their loved ones deal with their conditions, and control their weight and blood sugar levels.

All our research and hard work and innovative thinking produced great results in their family members. In 2007, we decided to share what we had learned through a diabetes information portal. On that back of that excellent work, we connected with a range of committed medical and nutrition specialists.

In 2010, we noticed that the medical research and patients’ clinical results shared one common element: the need for a healthy nutrition plan as the key to controlling weight, blood sugar, metabolism and even mental focus and energy levels.

With our families’ doctors advising us to practice portion control, we turned to registered dietitians and other health professionals to develop a portion and nutrition control system that would be easy to use, affordable and medically sound. And thus, Precise Portions was born.

Research Outcome

After interviewing hundreds of health experts, dieticians and professionals, we realized that food wasn’t our enemy as the marketing machinery was indicating.

They precisely wanted us to feel bad about our weight, about our bodies, about ourselves in general, so that they could precise supplements, pills, weight loss programs, slim drinks, etc.

And for many decades it worked perfectly for them but now people are more aware. People understand marketing strategies and people are looking for more healthier ways to live a long and healthy life.

This is where our researched also brought us. Listed below are all the components that can ensure that you and your family live a long and healthy life.

We talk more about them in our Bootcamp webinar.

‘Fit’ is a Mindset

Say goodbye to temporary weight loss after strict dieting or surgery. Fit is a mindset, not a body type. Now, you can lose weight forever once you have the ‘Fit’ Mindset.

Portion Guiding Tools

Our portions guiding tools and systems will help you know exactly how much to eat and where to stop. It will also ensure that you eat all food componets to produce the nutrients that your body needs.

Family Buy-in

Make sure you get your family onboard with this lifestyle of precise portions. It has to be a team effort because it’s a lifestyle change. Your kids will thank you later for teaching them about portion control.

Foods Habits

Good habits lead to good outcomes. Sporadic actions lead to sporadic results. If you are looking for permanent weight loss, and a healthy body, then you must invest in healthy habits.

Long Term Goals

Passion eating is the number one reason for weight gain. Instead of looking for passion in food, why not set life goals and invest passion in those life goals. Whether it’s a dream vacation, dream car, dream home, work towards making that a reality.

Home Cooking

Home cooked food is way more healthy, way more nutritious, way more filling and way more cost effective than ordered food. Make cooking a family activity. Go the old fashioned way. The family that eats together stays together.

Our Philosophy: No Guesswork in Eating Right.

In a time when ‘Supersize’ has become the normal size, we have lost the ability to judge what a right-sized portion actually looks like.
Is it any wonder obesity is on the rise, that more than one-third (35.7%) of adults are considered to be obese?

The only thing worse is the restrictive fad diets and possibly dangerous pills people use to try to shed pounds.

That’s where Precise Portions comes in.

We set out to design portion control dishes which would let you and your whole family start eating well right away – and that means eating the right foods in the right proportion. After all, eating right and weight loss are not things that are achieved overnight. They take time and consistency, but that doesn’t mean they have to be complicated.
