Just Think About It

If you want to eat less during the day, think about the last meal you’ve had.
British researchers have found that those who think about what they had for lunch tended to eat fewer snacks before dinner.
Why does this happen? Because when your mind recalls your meal, it send out signals to your body … and your body responds by remembering that it’s full and not hungry.
Well, oh yeah? I dunno ‘bout that. Oh, I know what’s wrong with my picture. I don’t eat lunch. So if I think about my last meal, I’m thinking about breakfast and around mid-afternoon, that’s enough to make me hungry, not curb my appetite.
So, here’s an amendment: Think about your last meal only if it was lunch.
