powerseedOk, the skinny on this, is that it’s a gadget that pretty much tells you when to eat, so you don’t overindulge.

The fatty (sorry…) is this:

While eating, activate your coach and place it at inconspicuous location on your table. Every thirty seconds the Powerseed silently flashes a small green light (or it can beep softly if you prefer).

At each signal take a bite. Savor it slowly and mindfully. Focusing your attention in this way imparts a new sense of control over the eating process, enhances the filling effect of the food and improves digestion. This also gives you the mental space to detect and act on your body’s fullness signals. Many find it a great way to slow their rapid eating.

PowerseedEvery five minutes the Powerseed flashes a different signal as a reminder to evaluate your level of hunger or food satisfaction. When you detect the first twinge of satisfaction, you simply quit eating. Most likely this will be well before the point where you normally quit. Fifteen minutes later you’ll find that you feel totally content. This single strategy can help you avoid consuming hundreds of “mindless” calories every day. Portion control has never been easier!

Now the question is… if you get to the point where you believe you need something like this, how likely is it that you won’t just throw this 50$ product right out the window after three of four irritating beeps?

Nevertheless, it looks like some sort of alien monolith, and to that I tip my hat.
