FOREWORD This past semester has been a huge learning experience for me, largely due to the fact of how challenging capstone was for me. This self-driven project put all my skills to the test and I am proud to say that I am extremely happy with how it came out (and it will only get better!). Through my projects ups and downs, I managed to pull-through and alas be able to present to you, my fellow reader, my precious capstone ONE TWO ONE, a portable diabetic portion control container. Feel free to peruse through this process book and relive with me this incredible process of learning, curiosity, exploration, failure, and humble revelations.

PROJECT STATEMENT The practice of food portion control is an important component in a diabetics highly disciplined lifestyle. ONE TWO ONE is a portable portion control food vessel to carry self-prepared bite-sized portioned meals for diabetics. These vessels accommodate all meal plans and allow the user to fill up their food to their appropriate serving size.

POINT OF ENTRY Dino Lauando | Capstone Presentation | Len Mayer | Spring 2017


MY POINT OF ENTRY For my product, I decided I would focus on one of these three important factors that contribute to a diabetics healthy lifestyle, which is nutrition: It is important that diabetics go on a strict meal plan and practice portion control in order to limit the amount of sugar they take in — this serves as a great point of entry for me.

By measuring and portioning their meals, it helps facilitate a healthy lifestyle by maintaining their glucose levels at a steady state.

After scavenging the Internet for days, I narrowed down my findings to the only two existing products that helped with portion control.
