Four Weird Tricks That Make You Eat Less
If you want to lose weight but have absolutely no will power, here are four tricks that will make you eat less:
1) Turn on Relaxing Music. Soft music naturally relaxes you and lowers your stress level, which makes you chew slower than if you were listening to, say, death metal. And when you eat slower, you start feeling full faster.
2) Turn on More Lights. Dim lighting might create a more romantic atmosphere, but another reason restaurants keep the lights down is because it lowers your inhibitions and makes you eat more.
3) Light a Vanilla-Scented Candle. The scent of vanilla makes you less likely to want dessert. In fact, one group of volunteers lost an average of four-and-a-half pounds each by wearing vanilla-scented patches.
4) Paint Your Dining Room Blue. This is weird, but researchers have found that people eat 33% less if they're sitting in a blue room. It's because when light bounces off of the walls, it creates a blue tint, which makes the food look less appetizing. The colors red, orange, and yellow have the opposite effect, which is why so many fast-food places use those colors inside.
