Secrets of Success

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



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 - by RSMALL1
  • 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 :-) - by SBERUMEN89
  • 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! - by ROCK1CHERRY
