Losing weight is hard enough. So it’s best to make it a little easier on yourself by using the tricks below. They all depend on research.
- Take small plates
You tend to fill a plate, whether it is a small or large plate. If you eat a small plate, you will almost automatically eat less.
- Hang a mirror next to the dining table
Those who see themselves eating junk food enjoy it less. If you see a plate full of vegetables in the mirror, then you eat it with more pleasure.
- clean the kitchen
If the kitchen is a mess, you’ll be eating an extra 100 calories a day, according to research. In clean and tidy kitchens, people are more likely to opt for carrots or any other healthy snack.
- Dim the lights
Surprisingly, with a simple mood light on, people enjoyed their food more, ate more slowly and consumed up to 18 percent fewer calories.
- mint scent
Another strange study: people who smell mint every two hours are more focused and less hungry. They consumed – at least in the study – 2,800 fewer calories per week.
- Choose a blue board
The idea is to contrast the colors that make you eat less. So choose white pasta with red sauce, not white sauce. According to scientists, a plate with a blue border is preferable. So you may appreciate more than they are and therefore eat less.
