Food Thoughts Help You Eat Less

Think FOOD, Eat less

Some of our smartest scientists at Carnegie Mellon University discovered that continuous thinking about eating a particular food, such as candy or cheese, resulted in the study dieters to eat less of those foods they craved when it was offered to them.

This goes along with the already well-known idea that thinking about a food can make your mouth water. These savvy researchers extended this idea to find that you can also think your way into being satisfied without actually eating the food.

The study used M&Ms and cheese cubes and learned that imagining eating a lot of a food caused the mind to subconsciously restrict how much of that food the dieters actually later ate.

In a nutshell, the study conclusion found that people who imagined eating more food ate less of that same food when it was set before them later on.

Eat Healthy By Cooking at Home

Prepare food ahead of timeWhy Cook at Home?

To make sure you know what you are eating, it’s best to be your own cook in your own kitchen. To do this, you’ll need to go food shopping.

before Shopping

Before shopping, it’s smart to create a menu for your week. Look through cookbooks, search for online menus such as ones at the Food Network or any other favorites you come across. Then make a shopping list so you buy what you need, instead of what tempts you as you innocently cruise the shelves.

Choose recipes that include some of the same ingredients. That way you can use all the ingredient you buy and won’t waste any food.

Shop Ahead of Time

Get your groceries in advance so you have a stocked fridge and pantry before the week begins. If you know it’s going to be a hectic week, buy some partially prepared food that requires only a little bit of work to make. Just read the ingredients to make sure they’re healthy.

Prepare Your food Ahead of Time

A great idea is to prepare as much food over the weekend for the week. You can chop vegetables, cook chicken for salads, hard boil eggs, chop vegetables , marinate meat for the next day, and make a batch of brown or wild rice. This will make is easy to  put together a meal during any day of the week.

Cook more than one meal at a time. If you’re already grilling or baking chicken, make  extra and freeze half or place meal-sized portions in air-tight containers for another day.

Freeze Food For Later

Freezing food is a one more way to have prepared food on hand. But be sure to label your containers and bags of food so you know what they contain. If you are one of those neat and tidy organized people, you can even keep a list so you can see exactly what is in your freezer. And remember to wrap food tightly and also leave some space between frozen items so cold air can circulate around them.
