We know it is hard to lose weight, especially if you live in an area that is home to a number of fast food chains or restaurants. But don’t worry, Amazon got you with this one.
The online selling platform is selling the Pavlok Bracelet, a bracelet that will give you an electric shock one you start to overeat.
The company promises to help you out if you are spending too much time on the internet, if you are sleeping too much, or if you are eating too much.
According to the manufacturer of the product, “Pavlok allows you to speak your reptile brain’s language by adding an unpleasant element (a safe and harmless ‘zap’ of electricity on your wrist) to what you have been taught to love (your nasty lingering habit), quickly conditioning your mind to associate an ‘unpleasant’ feeling with your bad habit… and stopping it all together.”
The price of the bracelet is $199.
Per charge, the bracelet can give you 150 shocks.
Another great thing about this bracelet is that your friends can also download its app and they can give you a shock if they see you eating too much, sleeping too much, or if you are on a shopping spree even if you are broke.
During an interview with the ABC News, the inventor of the Pavlok said, “It feels like if you were to touch a doorknob after rubbing your socks on the carpet.”
The inventor added: “There’s a real power in using a little bit of pain to help you break your bad habits.”
