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.
Do not just when choosing food. Foods that seem healthy and delicious, it could be putting your health at risk due to contamination of harmful bacteria. Some healthy food, it has a risk of the disease. Here are some tasty foods that have health risks as quoted iVillage:
1. Chicken Eggs
Chicken eggs are healthy source of protein needed by the body. But the Center for Science in the Public Interest in a few times over the years 1990 to 2006, reported that the eggs analyzed contained outbreaks of food borne illness. Salmonella bacteria that normally live in the intestinal tracts of animals and birds are the biggest cause of contamination of eggs. But the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) stating that the risk can be minimized by way of purchase, storage and processing eggs right. Store eggs in the refrigerator and cook eggs until completely cooked. Avoid using raw eggs in recipes, such as when making a cake.
Greens may be hard to believe if popular green vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, kale and cabbage can cause health risks. Production, handling and preparation incorrectly can cause contamination of the bacteria E. coli, norovirrus and salmonella. In 2010 outstanding cases of bacterial contamination of lettuce by E. coli and associated with at least 19 cases of the disease in New York, Michigan, and Ohio. Wash greens before thoroughly cooked by soaking in water.
