A plate that reduces the fat in your food has been invented

According to a promotional video for the plate, its borrows its design from a sponge surface and contains 500 perforated holes to absorb the oil from a dish into the bottom of each crevice.

The AbsorbPlate

Your fitfam efforts are about to get a huge boost with this plate.

The AbsorbPlate is a new invention by an ad agency called BBDO Bangkok, in association with the health board. The normal-looking plate claims to soak up to about 7ml of oil, or an average of 30 calories, from every meal that sits on it.

Mashable reports that the plate is part of the Thai government's efforts to combat the country's obesity problem.

Thai food is generally known to be cooked with very large amounts of oil. A study published by the Thailand Business News last year revealed that Thailand is ranked second in the whole of Southeast Asia for its high obesity rates.

According to Mashable, BBDO Bangkok says the plate has been launched as a trial, and thousands of plates have been given out to local restaurants.

I will definitely want to test out this plate on my dinner table. What do you think? Let me know in the comments section below.
