Embrace the Illusion of Eating More
For the first time in your life, you’re committed to losing weight. You’ve already started making healthier food choices and exercising regularly. Unfortunately, you’re encountering a common problem. Because you’ve consumed huge portions for years, you’re struggling to feel satisfied with smaller helpings. If you can relate to this scenario, you might benefit from learning some tricks to provide you with the illusion you’re eating more than you really are:
- To feel like you’re eating a feast, instead of a modest dinner, consider investing in smaller plates. By filling a small plate with healthy selections, you likely won’t notice you’re consuming less food. Besides buying smaller plates, you might wish to replace your short, round glasses with taller ones. You’ll feel like you’re drinking more of your favorite beverage than you really are consuming.
- To increase your sense of fullness, consider making dinner an event by serving yourself one course at a time. Dedicate a certain amount of time for each course while conversing with family members and friends. Chew your food thoroughly. By savoring your food, you’ll give your brain enough time to transmit signals of fullness to your stomach.
- To create the illusion of consuming more food, you might want to eat three larger meals daily as opposed to five smaller ones. Slicing up your food might also make it appear more plentiful on your plate. Regardless of how you create the illusion of eating more food, remember to fill your plate with real, healthy selections.
All of your meals should contain two important components, protein and fiber. These two elements of every, balanced meal will help you feel full longer. If you need assistance developing a healthy eating plan, consider scheduling a free consultation at a Metabolic Research Center near you today.
