A restaurant in central China has apologised for encouraging diners to weigh themselves and then order food accordingly.
The policy was introduced after a national campaign against food waste was launched.
The beef restaurant in the city of Changsha placed two large scales at its entrance this week.
It then asked diners to enter their measurements into an app that would then suggest menu items accordingly.
The policy caused uproar on Chinese social media.
Hashtags about the restaurant have been viewed more than 300 million times on the social platform Weibo.
The restaurant said it was "deeply sorry" for its interpretation of the national "Clean Plate Campaign".
President Xi Jinping ignited the campaign this week, calling the levels of national food wastage "shocking and distressing".
