What is Plate? | Prime Women Plate | A Weight Management Program for Women

What is PLATE?

PLATE is a weight management program designed specifically for women near or over 50. The program was developed in collaboration with Dr. Kathryn Waldrep, practicing OB-Gyn, with 35 years of experience in treating and counseling women from childbearing age to end of life. She has witnessed firsthand the havoc hormones play on a woman’s weight and her ability to lose weight.

After menopause, a woman’s metabolism is likely to go down 10 to 20% each decade. Diets that work well for younger women and men do not work for the postmenopausal woman. The eating program follows what Dr. Waldrep recommends for this age group; more protein, adequate nutrient-rich vegetables, minimal fruits, healthy fats, additional calcium and drastically reducing sugar intake.

PLATE is an acronym that stands for:


You start by getting your portions correct with nutritionally balanced meal plans designed specifically for women near or over 50.


For an eating program to work, it must fit within your lifestyle. PLATE allows you to eat out, on the road, family gatherings and indulging in wine and other adult beverages.


The program keeps you on track by providing reminders to plan your meals, when it's time to start your meals and when to stop for the day, prompts to exercise and more.


When you eat your meals is integral to the program. PLATE follows the latest and most conclusive research on when meals should be eaten.


Participants are encouraged to do some sort of exercise such as walking every day and two days a week of strength training.
