The Mind Trick That Helps You Eat Fewer Calories

When you sit down to eat| you can trick your mind into thinking you’re eating more without actually consuming more calories. Here’s the trick that Julie Upton| RD| of Appetite For Health recommends: “Divide your food and treats into several smaller pieces.” Try cutting up a sandwich| piece of banana bread| or bagel into quarters or slicing a piece of grilled chicken into several smaller pieces. It means taking more time to chew each individual bite and acts as a mind game that helps trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten way more than you really have.
