As a health professional or a health educator, getting your students and patients to visualize just how much a pound of excess body fat is, may be an uphill task. However, with this 1 lb Human Body Fat Replica, your explanation sessions have been made a lot shorter and your life a lot easier.
Although this replica is made completely from vinyl plastic, it looks just like body fat. So the next time you have a biology class to teach, or a medical seminar to anchor, you know what to do.
It comes in various weights. The 5 pound version is pictured below:
The linked Amazon product is the 1 pound version. It looks like this:
- This product is a life size three dimensional replica of a pound of human body fat. The color, the texture, and the weight-to-volume ratio all perfectly represent what an actual pound of body fat would look like.
- The 1 lb Human Body Fat Replica is made entirely from vinyl plastic (no humans or animals were harmed by the manufacturing of this product).
- It is soft, lightweight and totally pliable. You can squeeze, hold and move it around anyhow you please.
- It comes with a round base on which you can easily mount it for display.
- The body fat replica comes in only one color – I’m guessing the color that most closely resembles body fat.
Even though this product was developed mainly for educational purposes, it can have other applications. If you’ve been struggling with weight management, this item might be a good motivator. Just mount it somewhere that is regularly within your line of sight as a reminder to never give up.
Also, if you’re a health professional who is having a hard time convincing your obese patients to lay off the snacks, you might want to show them what a pound of body fat looks like. And if you know anyone who loves to collect weird stuff, this might make a great present.
