In the process of dieting is not nothing wrong with wanting a snack. To meet these desires, limit yourself just by taking a small portion snack. According to recent studies, snacking on small portions of the same turned out to be a rewarding experience if we take snacks in larger portions.
Similarly, according to the conclusion of a new study published in the journal Food, Quality and Preference. The study involved more than 100 adults who were given the same snack with different portions, namely small and large portions. Those large meals get 77 percent more calories than those who ate small portions.
Although number of snacks that go into the body of the two groups differ, but both reported strong desire to snack them satisfied 15 minutes after eating.
“This study supports the idea that eating enjoyment goal driven more by the availability of food and not on the amount of food eaten,” said study author Brian Wansink, a professor of economics at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York in a university news release.
These findings can also help people trying to lose or maintain weight.
“If you want to control your weight, here’s the secret: just nibble a little snack you, wait for 15 minutes. Remember that you are eating a delicious snack,” said Wansink.
