Many products in one package for a lower price makes you eat more.

Shops, restaurants, commercials… Everything keeps telling us “Eat! Eat more and more often!” We obey and start eating even when we have no appetite.

 

DANGER #1. “economical” package

 

Many products in one package for a lower price makes you eat more.

 

During an experiment, women were given a 2-pound pack of macaroni and were instructed to take out of it as much as they thought they needed to cook 2 portions of macaroni. The average number of macaronis taken out of the pack by them was 302. Then these women did the same with the 17.5 OZ pack of macaroni and the average number was 234 this time.

 

When one eats something from a big plate, he eats in general 25% more in comparison to a small plate. It is easy now to make a conclusion: a big package makes one forget how much one eats.

 

How to avoid this danger? Buy products in a smaller package. If you prefer to buy big package because it is cheaper and economical for a family budget, it is worth it to divide it into several parts and put them in separate containers. It can help to control how much you eat.
