  • Say What?: The Diet Fork

    Any weight loss aid can potentially become a money-making machine, but I’m not sure the creator of the Diet Fork will recover his initial investment any time soon.

    The idea? A smaller surface area results in less food being scooped, which means less calories are consumed in a meal.

    Except the Diet Fork is a mere band-aid to a larger problem. It does not encourage eating healthier foods or making better selections. Using the Diet fork does not mean you are eating more fruits and vegetables or consuming less saturated fats.

    Not to mention — a lot of highly caloric foods don’t call for any silverware: chips, ice cream sandwiches, French fries, burgers, and supersize sodas.

    The advertisements refer to the diet fork as a “portion control tool”, although I don’t see how this is the case. Eating with this special utensil doesn’t necessarily mean your plate isn’t overflowing with sausage links and 8 inch pancakes drenched in maple syrup.

    This gets a grunt and an eyeroll from me, but I would love to hear your thoughts!

      I read about the The Diet Plate a while back and was afraid that the creators of something so beautiful and useful would come up with something so stupid as the Diet Fork. The website is so sketchy! How come there isn’t even a picture of the fork itself?

      As for the Diet Plate, I like it because it’s pretty and it allows people to start seeing what proper portion sizes look like and how much they’re worth calorie-wise. It does seem kind of complicating though and it would be pretty bad if you had to rely on that plate all the time. What do you think?
