Only the Strong Get Pudding: Heavy Lifting Eating Utensils

For some of us, the closest we ever get to exercise is lifting the fork to our mouths over and over. The Dumb-Bell Cutlery set can help us gym-phobic food lovers get into shape one fork-full at a time by making us work for that next bite of pasta.

The fork and knife each weigh 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) while the dessert spoon weighs a whopping 2 kilograms. With every bite, you burn a few calories and help strengthen your muscles. We wouldn’t recommend using this cutlery set as your only exercise routine, but maybe the thought of lifting a four-pound weight to your mouth over and over will inspire you to slow down a little on the ice cream.
