This Bracelet Shocks You If You Eat Too Much Fast Food Or Spend Too Much Money

By. Anuradha

We all behaved well when we lived with our mom. She was always there to treat us with good foods which were nutritious, always helped us to sort out our issues and she did not even allow us to spend too much time on Tv or video games and forced us to engage in studies. Those days you would probably have dreamt of living alone in your own apartment where the rules of your mom will no longer be valid and you would be free as a bird.

But when you finally get the dream life that you want, haven’t you ever felt like it would have been good if your mom was there? now, you might be spending too much on junk foods, spending all the time online and there would be no one to discipline you. You would genuinely feel bad about your life when you run out of credits and grow so many layers of fat.

However, Amazon has something interesting to offer for all those people who cannot control themselves.

Amazon is selling a bracelet that aims to stop you from spending too much money or eating too much junk food.

The bracelet is named as Pavlok that can be purchased on Amazon and said to be a ‘behavior training device that works by utilizing Aversive Conditioning’’.

The product creator said that “Aversive conditioning is essentially behavior training that uses negative stimuli and association to help reaffirm a specific action as undesirable.

The reason so many people continue to smoke even though they know it’s bad… is because for many smoking IS pleasurable.

The reason so many people continue to consume an unhealthy snack after unhealthy snack is because it often DOES taste good.

And that’s why Pavlok is ultimately so effective.”

In fact, Pavlok can be used to help you break many annoying habits.

It includes wasting time online, mindless eating, eating fast food, biting your nails, smoking, and sleeping in. According to the reviews on the product, the device works best for those who have a problem waking up in the morning.

The way these bracelet works is rather simple. Creators of this product compare it to having food poisoning – once you get it, you stop eating the food that gave you the poisoning, and that is called aversive conditioning.

“Using the slightly uncomfortable stimulus of a shock, Pavlok helps train your brain to associate the bad behavior with the uncomfortable stimulus. And after as little as a few weeks of associating the two with consistent use, your brain begins to say:

‘Hey, wait a second. Maybe I DON’T like smoking.’

‘Hey, wait for a second, maybe that donut doesn’t do much for me at all.'”

Although the idea sounds interesting, the product does have mixed reviews online, while some absolutely loved it. 

Others did not enjoy the product whatsoever.
