Eat Snacks with Non-Dominant Hand

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

As I waited in the checkout line at my local market, I scanned one of those "women's" magazines. There was a brief write-up about research done on how eating snacks with your non-dominant hand could help you eat less.

I thought the concept was rubbish and I was wrong!!!

I measured out my usual snack of raw almonds and started eating with my non-dominant hand while reading. I only ate half the usual serving.

Think I'll give this a go a few more times.

    That is quite smart. Would be better to use your off dominant foot. ( :

    What an interesting concept. Reminds me of the right brain-left brain stuff I heard about at different points (high school teacher had us write in a journal with both hands, art book had activities to draw with the non-dominant hand to bypass drawing what we thought something should look like).
