2 Easy Ways to Cut Your Appetite

Here are two easy ways to feel full faster on less food: use a smaller fork and chew your food longer.

Turns out these two tactics have some science behind them. In a study, people who snacked on pudding ate less when they took small bites and savored the flavor for a while.

Savor the Flavor
Yep, the pudding snackers not only took little bites, but they let the bites roll around on their tongues for a full 9 seconds. The result? They ate much less pudding than the folks who took big bites and swallowed them in 3 seconds. So next time you get the munchies, try eating with less gusto . . . Watch this 1-minute video to learn how to pick exactly the right-size food portion.
