Forget counting calories — this plate does all the work for you!
The Thai Health Promotion Foundation has created the AbsorbPlate, which guarantees to cut about 30 calories from each Thai meal.
The video explains that while Thai food is delicious, it can be quite greasy, which is partially to blame for the country's high obesity rates (Thailand has the second highest obesity rate in South East Asia). And because, as the video explains, "Thais won't change the food they eat," the Thai Health Promotion Foundation decided to "tackle how they eat the food."
But how does it get rid of calories? The video above explains how it works, but the gist of it is that the plate kind of behaves the way a sponge does.
AbsorbPlate, created by BBDO Bangkok, was designed with 500 tiny holes "to separate excess oil from food before people eat it." Each AbsorbPlate sucks up to 7ml of grease per meal.
We hope this plate makes it way to Canada STAT!
