That is exactly what Mandometer does not let you do. This is a simple device that works wonders in controlling and regulating our food habits. It is even more effective in controlling obesity in children as they find it fun to use the device while eating their meals.
What is a Mandometer?
It is a simple instrument developed after more than two decades of research on obesity and people’s eating habits. It is essentially an interactive computer system that trains the user about how to eat and not what to eat which is better taken care of by dietitians. The device is attached to the plate that we use for food so that it can weigh the quantity of food. As you start eating, the machine detects that your speed is too fast and you get signals to slow down.
Why Mandometer is Required?
It has been observed that those who eat fast, tend to eat more than required by the body. In fact they don’t even realize that they are overeating. As their eating speed is fast, the brain does not receive the signals about full stomach on time. Our brain also takes some time judging whether the amount of food eaten by us is sufficient or not. By the time the brain confirms that the stomach is full, an obese person has already overeaten. This happens in teenagers and children and the habits continues in adulthood as well resulting in weight gain and obesity.
