Scientists at General Electric invent new device that can instantly count the calories in a plate of food

A US company has created a device that uses microwaves to count the calories in your food.

Developed by scientists at General Electric Global Research in New York, the device calculates the fat content, water content and weight of your dish.

It then formulates this data into an equation which estimates the amount of calories on the plate.

The prototype is a cumbersome machine and it’s still in testing stages, although the 40 to 50 trials have been within five to ten percent of the correct calorie count.

The team at GE are hoping the end product will be no bigger than your average dinner plate.

Good news for all the people out there trying to lose weight, as the caloric guessing game will soon be a thing of the past – as will ever enjoying another meal.
