Eating less can be as simple as not putting the serving dishes on the table.  A new study from Cornell University called “Serve Here: Eat There” looked at the eating habits of 78 adults.

Brian Wansink, the director of the Cornell Food & Brand Lab said “We looked at whether serving foods from the kitchen counter, instead of at the table, would reduce the number of times a person refilled his or her plate”.  The research showed that when they kept the serving dishes out of sight and not on the table, women eat 20% fewer calories and men eat 29% fewer calories.

The researchers also pointed out that this strategy can work to increase the number of healthy foods your family can eat like vegetables and fruits by keeping them out in the open and easily accessible.

Brian Wansink is the author of Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think.

My name is Mike Cola (yeah that is me in the pic @ 54 years old). I’ve been called a “Contrarian” since I believe that most mainstream fitness approaches are extremely inefficient.

I achieved the look in that photo just training 3 times per week. My specialty is helping people reach peak condition without having to hit the gym 6-7 times per week.
