HAPIfork, the fork that helps you lose weight!

Want to lose weight, and ever wondered how fast you really eat? Most of the packaging tells you the number of calories food has but not the amount that you really consume or the speed at which you consume it. And those informations are really crucial during a diet if you want it to be efficient.

One study showed that speedy eaters consume almost 70 calories more per meal than those who take their time and savour mouthfuls. Over the course of a day, this is the same as eating a chocolate bar!  “It is well recognised that eating too fast is part of the bigger picture and we could all eat a little bit more slowly“, said the medical director of charity Weight Concern, Dr Ian Campbell.

hapiforkA Hong Kong company called HapiLabs, unveiled a Smart Fork during the CES 2013. This new invention that will let you know if you’re eating too much too fast, called HAPIFORK, was created by a french engineer, Jacques Lepine, after his wife told him off for eating too quickly.

The HAPIFork is designed to tell you if you’re eating too fast and too much by monitoring how often you take mouthfuls. It uses a sensor that determines when you pick up food with the fork and when you eat from it. It also records the time between these actions and the next mouthful in order to know if you are eating too quickly.
If you eat too many mouthfuls within a minute, the fork will start vibrating as a phone and light up. And because all the data can be stored on your smart phone, you can measure how less a chowhound you’ve become.

The fork will go on sale in America in April, and is thought to hit UK shelves for about £60 in five colours shortly afterwards. There are also plans for a HAPIspoon – perfect for tackling desserts!
