To Eat Less – Tune In to the Sounds of Your Food

gold check

If you want a quick and simple way to eat less, just say no to ear buds, music and TV while eating. In an intriguing set of experiments researchers at Brigham Young University were able to show that when we can hear the sounds created as we bite, chew, crunch, and munch on our foods, we ultimately eat less. It seems when we mask the sounds of our eating with competing sounds coming from things like music and TV, we reduce the sensory cues entering our brains that can quiet the appetite control centers. So tune in to the sounds of your meals to help fill you up on less.
