Tricking Your Mind Into Thinking Your Eating More....


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have a tendency to over eat so I found that if I wanted a slice of pizza ( not the whole thing or 4 slices as I normally would have done) I would take a slice and cut it into 4 slices. This way as I eat I am SEEING 4 slices and it takes me more time to EAT the 1 slice tricking my mind into thinking I have eaten more than I really have. emoticon

    This is a great tip! I would fill up on that one piece of pizza. I'm sure there are many foods you can use to play tricks on your mind. emoticon

    Great idea! I'll have to try this next time my husband orders a large pizza! Don't want to deprive myself, but this way I'll still feel as if I get a reward :-)

    This is a great suggestion. I think I have the same issue. I also sometimes fill my plate because I feel like I am starving and end up eating it all because I don't realize how much I am really eating. I think I will try to use this suggestion in the future. So simple, yet really clever! Thanks for the tip!

    This is a great tip! The mind does play all sorts of tricks on us so here's a chance for us to trick our minds -- in a good way. Thank you! emoticon
