Bring table manners back and try this tip to lose weight.
If you cut your food into smaller portions – like slicing your chicken breast – it slows down your rate of food ingestion.
Additionally, it visually ruses you into thinking that there’s more food on your plate. Researchers from Japan’s National Food Research Institute discovered that people estimated that specific piles of sliced meats and veggies were 27 percent larger than if the food was presented in one piece.
Visual cues can influence your satiety, so making your portions seem bigger will help you feel satisfied with less food.
