BETTER THAN

A SILVER SPOON

Spoonit's founder Lisa Bailey explains how she came to create

the Carb Spoon. She currently works within the NHS as part of a

weight management service in Wales.

"

I was 13 years old in a

home economics class

and I read a book that

explained the role of a

dietitian. My mum had

always struggled with her weight and

even as a young child I could see how

unhappy it made her. My uncle, who has

Type 1 diabetes, collapsed in an airport

just before a flight because of a hypo. I

remember him talking about his struggles

with food. The importance of nutrition

resonated with me and strengthened my

decision to train as a dietitian.

"I've been a Dietitian in the NHS

for about 15 years now, specializing

in diabetes and, more recently, weight

management. It frustrates me that with the

wealth of information we have available

to us today, we are more confused about

what to eat than ever before. Being newly

diagnosed with diabetes is stressful

enough without having to wade through

endless pages of conflicting information

about food. The same struggle is true

for those seeking the best way to lose

weight.

Labels with love

"So many diets today focus on cutting

foods out. That can mean that they lack

essential nutrition or have complicated

ways to work out what and how much to

eat. This isn't good for your mind or your

body. Very often people find diets difficult

to maintain, they quickly return to bad

eating habits, gain weight and the 'diet

cycle' starts again.

"Portion control offers an alternative to

traditional diets where the focus is mainly

on what you eat, allowing you flexibility

with your choices. Let's stop the 'you

can't' when it comes to eating and start

with 'you can'.

"You can eat any type of food, so

you can continue eating the foods you

like. You can eat the same meals as

the rest of your family but make yours

perfectly portioned for your own needs.

You can understand portion control - with

Spoonit's easy to follow accompanying

guides. You can stop feeling guilty about

the food you eat - our products help you

eat the right amounts.

"I was tired of hearing about fad diets

and the restrictive dieting rules the people

I spoke to were trying to live by, so I

embarked on a journey to create a simple

solution to portion sizes, taking the focus

off what people eat and concentrating

more on how much. I believe that being

in control of your portion sizes, not only

gives much more food freedom and

choice, it also helps you build a better

relationship with food."
