No To Nuts

Say no to nuts: The bigger the serving bowl, the more you’ll eat, researchers from the Cornell University said. And they are not wrong as just 1 handful of oil-roasted mixed nuts have more than 170 calories. And we are sure that you don’t stop at just 1 fistful of them. Fix? Go for pistachios. They have 80 Kcal in 1 handful and the shells will slow down your eating rate. Also Read - Involuntary Defecation: Vladimir Putin Slipped On Stairs Causing Him To Involuntarily Defecate, What Is This Condition?

Eat In Smaller Plate

Go for smaller plates: Swap your big plate for the smaller one and you will go on to eat 20 or 25 per cent lesser. Thinking about filling your belly? Well, research says that you won’t feel any less full after the meal is over. It’s all in your mind!
