Large Servings Beat Impact of Mindful Eating

Many experts advocate mindful eating to promote eating fewer calories as they teach people how to choose healthy foods and how to control portion sizes. However, new research from the University of New South Wales shows that people who given large servings of food eat more than those who are given smaller servings, even after they have been educated on the effect of portion size on calorie consumption or trained on mindful eating. The study was recently published in the Journal of Health Psychology. Portion sizes in restaurants and at home have dramatically increased since the early 1970s, and are […]
