Sometimes, when a sugar craving hits, you can’t help but to reach into the cookie jar a few too many times. Before you know it, all you’re left with are a couple of crumbs and a bad feeling that you ate too much.
A nifty gadget called the Kitchen Safe secures the lid on your treat jar and prevents those with a sweet tooth from mindless eating. It’s like a temporary sugar restraining order.
If you think you have the power to resist munching on just one more sweet, science proves otherwise. As the product website notes, human willpower is not always reliable. We have a finite reservoir of willpower, and with a lock, willpower won’t have to be used. Kitchen Safe enables us to reserve willpower for the moments when wereally need it.
Even more, the timer will force cookie cravers to seek distraction. When a craving is psychological — caused by feelings like boredom, anxiety or fatigue — many will find that after reading a few pages of a book, playing a game of sudoku or even going for a run (too much?) the craving has subsided.
