Easy Portion Control

Sick of measuring out your food on other diets? The Sonoma Diet makes portion control user-friendly. To avoid the American bad habit of waistline-busting "supersizing," the Sonoma Diet lets plates do the work for you. You use a 7-inch plate or a 2-cup bowl for breakfast, and a 9-inch plate for lunch and dinner. Simply fill up your plate in the proper proportions of protein, vegetables, grains, and fruit, and you instantly have the healthy amount you need.

Breakfast: Option 1

25% Grains, 75% Protein (7-inch plate)

Breakfast: Option 2

Dairy 50%, Grains 50% (2-cup bowl)


40% Protein, 60% Vegetables


30% Protein, 20% Grains, 50% Vegetables
