During the Holiday Season every year I tend to put on a couple of pounds. I love chocolate and can't resist sampling all of the sweet treats that are lying around.
To help me exercise some restraint in my eating habits, I now have the Knife and Fork Lift.
""Knife and Fork Lift™ is a combination of utensils and dumbbells that serve as a constant reminder that eating puts weight on and requires exercise to take it off. Lifting food with these utensils is like doing curls with dumbbells. Weight: 1.5 lbs each. Height: 9"
When I first saw these I thought they were hilarious. I thought they would be a great gift for the health conscious or for those looking for something truly unique.
I was not disappointed. The weights are heavy and kind of tiring to lift over and over. It really is like eating and exercising at the same time. Even if you don't benefit from the extra exercise, using the utensils makes it much more difficult to eat quickly. Which means you are much less likely to overeat. And if you don't want to actually use them, they would make a great centerpiece/reminder!
This is all the reminder I need.
To Buy It - For those of you that love health or love to purchase the really unique, Knife and Fork Lifts retail at $40 per set and can be purchased here. There is also a new spoonlift! that retails for $15 each.
