Our Channel 4 Lockable Box
Last night our lockable food storage box hit your screens as part of the Channel 4 show “How to Keep a Healthy Weight” hosted by Dr Michael Mosley. The show aims to burst some of the most common myths and misconceptions around calories and healthy weight management.
During the show Dr Micheal helps five volunteers who are either overweight our obese to go on a rapid weight loss diet. At the end of the show he gives each contestant a gift to help them continue their weight loss journey. This is where our lockable food storage box – The Lockabox One Crystal – is gifted to contestant Katie, who suffers from pre-diabetes and high blood sugar who struggles to resist treats when they are in the house. In the clip she is delighted with the gift and states “I will be using the box, because it is just too tempting, you open the cupboard and it is just there, so at least if I have to think about it and find a number or code, I will have lost the craving by then!”

So can our Lockabox One aid weight loss as Channel 4 suggests?
Well, quite simply yes. As shown on the Channel 4 show our Lockable food storage box can be used to help those who have trouble controlling cravings or overeating, keep food away from themselves. Quite simply place the food you would like to stop yourself eating into the lockable biscuit box and get a friend/partner to set a code, then lock it. Now you only have access if the person with the code gives it to you! Simple yet effective.
Weight loss and body positivity are huge topics in the media, and although most of us know the best way to lose weight, in practice this is much more difficult. One reason many of us struggle to lose weight is that once we begin to snack, we just can’t stop, the temptation of treats is just too much for us to resist and this makes the diet ineffective! People often suggest just not buying the snacks, but if you live in a house with others this can often be easier said than done, as others will often bring snacks into the house or will want to enjoy certain snacks.
Our see-through lockable box provides a solution, others in the house can know the code to the lockable box and therefore can access the snacks as and when they please, whereas you do not know the code so the snacks you choose to lock in are kept away and the temptation is lessened! The lockable box can be stored in the fridge, freezer or in a cupboard and is perfect for storing snacks due to its composition for food grade polycarbonate making it hygienic and super easy to clean.
