Playing Trick with Mind on Losing Weight


Do you know that you can lose weight, or at least eat less by deceiving your mind? That's what just my husband did to me.

Last night before going to sleep, I was hit by a hunger pang when in fact I ate enough for dinner. I tried to control myself as I know eating before bedtime will make me gain weight. As I was complaining of being hungry before bedtime, my husband checked the fridge and took out some left over pasta and re-heat it. He showed me a plate full of pasta after some time. He told me to close my eyes, and then he gave me a fork and asked me to dig in. As I finished the pasta in the plate, I felt that I was satisfied, and prepared to sleep.

When I woke up this morning and starting to prepare breakfast, I was surprised to see a bowl of left-over pasta in the fridge. I thought I finished them last night so I asked my husband about it. He just smiled and told me that he just gave me a small portion of it last night. 

I told him why he did that, he said that he remember an article he read in a magazine I recently bought stating that according to study, a person can lose weight by deceiving the mind of the quantity of the food eaten. The study showed that there were two groups of participants were one group were shown large serving of food and another a small serving. After that, they were blindfolded as they eat the same amount of serving for both groups. The result is the group which was shown a small serving felt hunger after several hours while the other group were not. So, he decided to test whether the study is true or not. And of course, he was quite concern about my well-being as I complain of gaining weight.
