You probably don’t know it but I am a technophile – I love playing with technology – I had the first real laptop ever made (by Toshiba back in the late 1980s!) and the first car phone system in Australia – all numbers were prefixed 007 – no kidding. So, it is not often that I see things come along in the technology space that are of real value in assisting weight loss, but this is way cool! Creating powerful pause points is an important part of developing the ability to eat the foods you love without losing control and breaking into a binge.
The Kitchen Safe is a time-locked container that you put your most ‘dangerous’ food into and set the time until you can next access it. For most people I find that they need to eat the snack foods they love every second day or so. This way you take out two choc chip biscuits – best time is morning tea (less drive to binge in the morning) – and immediately set the timer for 48 hours. It goes up to 10 days.
Buy the opaque version (same price $40) as the research shows we crave foods kept in clear containers more than in non-see through containers – yep – out of sight out of mind.
Finally, I love the idea of using it for things other than food i.e. cigarettes and … yep smartphones.
