A couple weeks ago, I wrote a piece about my friends' new diet-type product, Lifesize Portions, and how it had been named as "The Good" by About.com's health expert in her 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' report on new products. (I say "diet-type" because it's not really about dieting, but changing the way you eat.)
I thought it worth mentioning that KABC in Los Angeles just did a story on Lifesize Portions. I like mentioning these sort of things because it helps prove that sometimes there's actually substance to my yammerings. If you missed the broadcast or don't live in L.A., here's the report. And you get to see my pal Myles Berkowitz in action, from a safe distance.
(The report notes that you can do much of what Lifesize Portions does with simple items around the house. And that's very true. But I just don't think most people want to "size" their food with a golf ball. And while people can do this, obviously most don't, which is why there is an obesity problem. That's why sometimes a really well-designed product can prompt you to do what you want to do, but haven't been.)
