  Purpose

The study will involve cardiac rehabilitation clients and will measure their weight, height, waist circumference and blood pressure comparisons between first and final visit (after 8 weeks). A control group will receive usual care and an experimental group will receive usual care plus a portion control plate for their meals. Patients currently have their waist circumference, weight, height and blood pressure measured at their first visit (week 0) and at their final visit (week 8). This study would compare these three parameters at these same times (week 0 and week 8) between the control and experimental groups. The control group would receive the usual care while the experimental group would receive usual care plus be given a portion control plate at week 0.

The hypothesis of this study is that subjects from the experimental group will have an average reduction in: (a) waist circumference by > 5%, (b) weight or BMI by > 5%, and (c) systolic and diastolic blood pressure by >10%. The subjects in the control group are hypothesized to show an average less than these targets for the experimental group.
