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.
