How excited would you be if I told you that you could cut calories simply by eating off of a different type of plate? (video below)
Well, thanks to the Thai government, that dream is now a reality. Facing an obesity epidemic, the South East Asian country's health board recently collaborated with advertising agency BBDO Bangkok to design the revolutionary new "Absorbplate"—a dish that claims to reduce caloric intake by up to 30 calories per meal.
The beauty of the plate, however, is that it doesn’t require you to change your diet in order to experience its weight-loss magic. Designed specifically for greasy (delicious) Thai food, the Absorbplate works by soaking up extra oil and fat. While 30 calories may not seem like much, it is significant considering the unhealthy source of those calories, and can add-up over the course of a day.
Never fear, however—eating off of the Absorbplate won’t turn you into a social pariah, like those god-awful “fit” shoes or painfully obvious waist-trainers. The innovative dish is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also features an easy-to-clean design.
While the company has yet to set an official release date for their product, we are already planning on ordering as many Absorbplates as we can get our hands on. Watch the video below for an in-depth explanation of the Absorbplate’s design, and prepare for a future full of delicious, greasy, guilt-free eating!
