Next time you’re tempted to take the largest slice of cake, it is worth remembering that a piece half the size will leave you feeling just as happy.
least that’s what researchers at a leading university in the US are
saying – that smaller portions of snacks are just as likely to satisfy
our hunger as larger ones. Two
groups of volunteers were quizzed about how they felt 15 minutes after
eating servings of chocolate chips, apple pie, and chips. One group was given 100g of
chocolate, 200g of apple pie, and 80g of potato chips, all slightly
larger than the recommended sizes.
This equalled 1,370 calories. The
other group was given 10g, 40g, and 10g of the same foods respectively –
a total of 195 calories. The groups were then asked to rate their hunger and craving before the food was presented and 15 minutes after the tests ended.
The report was published by Cornell University in New York.
