But that's not the case this time! This is the best five pound body fat replica on the market. If you show this baby to someone carrying an extra forty pounds, they are sure to take notice. Show it to your kids and they will suddenly want to go out side and play. It might be the premier body part replica on the market--even better than dirty lungs, clogged arteries, or decaying teeth!
Bonus points for the realistic blood vessels!
Believe it or not, I bring it to work which inspires healthy lunch choices and place it on my home bar to encourage myself to jog everyday. My co-workers laughed when I brought it to work, but now they love coming by and just picking it up so much I get a little protective! THAT IS MY FAT!!! Ha ha, one of them asked me where I got it and I didn't tell her for a while. She tried to act nonchalant, but eventually it got the better of her. I relented and know she is going to order one. Tee-hee.
There may be pro's & con's about the details-etc for teaching. But-for motivation, this is terrific! If this doesn't get you going- nothing will! ( maybe put a couple slices of bread on top& bottom to make a "fat sandwich"!
If this is not a concern, please disregard this.
While its been too soon to see actual results, I can definitely tell that my "pet fat" - as my son calls it - will definitely help motivate me to change some unhealthy behaviors!
It isn't the easiest thing to clean, as it has an uneven 'rubbery' type surface, that seems to catch and hold dirt/grime, but warm soapy water seems to do the job.
It seems kind of pricey, for what it is, but if you are wanting an anatomically correct fat replica, I don't know where else you could get one.
