Duct tape across the mouth. Put a mark on it for every meal missed. Doesn't take long to see the results!

You can do some fuzzy math at the end of the day for calories missed.

@mtm2: Unfortunately, I am not looking for a device to count calories missed. I am looking for a device to count calories burned during exercise. For a co-worker who saw someone wearing one at her zumba class and would like one. Personally, I try to avoid the numbers game, you can get so obsessed with numbers that you lose sight of your purpose. I also find willpower to be a much more effective tool than duct tape. It's harder to get but lasts longer and doesn't leave a sticky residue.

I am a big Fitbit fan (http://www.fitbit.com) It is a small gizmo that clips to your clothing that counts steps and stairs. It does a reasonable job estimating your baseline caloric burn rate, and estimate calories burned as a result of physical activity. It is a bit expensive ($99) but you get what you pay for with it. They also have good customer service. My original Fitbit's battery stopped holding a charge at about 11 months. They sent me a brand new one, and the new model.
