    Highly interesting, though
    While I have reservations about its accuracy, if and when it is marketed, I expect it will sell cakes.

    There has to be smartphone apps that scan barcodes and give you nutritional information right?

    That can only work for 'processed' food, not home cooked stuff. Anyway, I am skeptical about how much useful this thing is. Beside, imagine pulling this out to check calories in food during a party or something .........

    For home cooked you'd just enter... Chicken 6oz. For other things you know your amount of each raw ingredient, which likely has a bar code. I just don't see how this is worth the price (although how is it so cheap anyway?).

    The device feels like a scam. I agree, it probably will sell like hotcakes. All those calorie counting devices and apps are always popular

    Forget about counting calories, smaller and fewer plates will work every time.

    It does, but unfortunately, not many can resist the temptation when it comes to good food. :mad:

    Alternatively, exercise four days a week and forget about the calories altogether.
