The CSS Diet System

The GLP-1 medications like semaglutide have become widely recognized for their effectiveness in reducing appetite, which in turn helps people eat less and lose weight. However, these benefits often reverse when the medication is stopped, and old eating habits may resurface, leading to weight regain. The CSS Diet System, which stands for Colors, Shapes, and Sizes, takes a different approach. It doesn’t depend on medication to control food intake. Instead, it equips you with the knowledge and practical tools to encourage lasting lifestyle changes through mindful portion control. The beauty of the CSS system is that it allows for a diverse range of everyday foods, including some of your favorite dishes. The system’s scientifically crafted dinnerware is designed to guide you and your family toward healthier eating habits subtly and sustainably, without straining your budget. This is what we call “Celebrating Semaglutide Success” – the shift away from reliance on medication to natural, self-managed portion control.

The Method

In his influential book “Mindless Eating,” Brian Wansink shares insights from his research on how our eating environment can significantly affect the quantity of food we consume. Drawing from these findings and other scientific studies, Dr. Gary Pepper and a team of nutrition specialists meticulously developed the CSS dinnerware and accompanying eating plan. The design leverages natural cues that signal our brains to eat less, making the process of consuming smaller portions feel instinctive. Moreover, the team has ensured that integrating the CSS system into daily life is both straightforward and enjoyable, preserving the joy and rhythm of mealtime traditions
