New research from Arizona State University proclaims that eating several small pieces of food is more satisfying than larger portions. It can also help you lose weight. The key here is cutting up and eating several small pieces of healthy food. If you couple this with eating smaller portions in your overall diet, you will be on your way to losing weight in no time -- all while enjoying your food just a little more.
"Cutting up energy-dense meal foods into smaller pieces may be beneficial to dieters who wish to make their meal more satiating while also maintaining portion control," says Devina Wadhera, the study's lead author and a graduate student in ASU's department of psychology, in a news release.
Eating small pieces of food takes longer, which gives your stomach more time to register that it's filling up. By giving your hunger hormones time to catch up with your eating, you end up eating until you're satisfied and you also eat less food overall.
How to do it
Put your fork or spoon down and take a short break in between bites so you stay in tune with how full you are without eating too much. Be sure to drink water with every meal to stay full and avoid overeating. Take your time to savor every bite!
