Forget counting calories to lose weight. A new machine does it for you.

The machine will tell you how many calories are on your dinner plate.


Waisting hours checking the nutritional info during your weekly food shop at Tesco may become a thing of the past thanks to a new calorie counting device.

The as yet unnamed machine by American brand General Electric allows you to measure calories and energy levels in your food before you eat it.

All you need to do is place your plate of food in it and it will tell you, making healthy home cooking that bit easier.

Although we're note sure what you're meant to do if it turns out it's high in calories. Throw it away perhaps?

General Electric cell biologist Matt Webster explained to Morning Edition how it all works: "We have the weight of the food and the proportion that's water and the proportion that's fat, and from that information, we can estimate calories."

However, the machine is still in the testing phase so it might be a while before it hits stores.

We'll stick to the diet and exercise apps for now.
