iFoon

people digest food differently with music; thus the iPod you use as an eating utensil is an iFoon

music might make food pass through a person's body faster, thus creating a wild new opportunity to create a skinnyfying new eating utensil from an iPod

pubmed says Both classical music and noise altered the regularity of gastric slow waves. The percentage of normal 2-4 cycles/min (cpm) waves was reduced from 77.9 +/- 4.7% at baseline to 66.9 +/- 5.4% during music

basically your musical eating utensil scans your playlist as a response to the caloric value of the food; maybe it even chipmunks tunes for a few hours if you eat a lot

       Treon, why is that 87% of your ideas of the form "There was a paper that said this, so why not do it?". The trick to reading the literature is to realize that even the craziest ideas are sometimes wrong.

       I pity the iFoon.

       sounds like the next dieting craze. now exactly what type of utensil would the iFoon imitate (i.e., spoon, fork)?
