Interesting …….

imageI don’t have to eat anything different or run around the block three times a day :-) All I have to do is pick up food differently. According to a study by the University of Southern California, people eat 30% less when they eat with their non-dominant hand. In other words, if you’re right handed, put the fork or the piece of pizza in your left hand. David Neal is a psychologist who led the study. He says that a lot of our eating is by HABIT we’re not even aware of how much food we’re shoveling into our mouths. By switching to your non-dominant hand, “[you] disrupt the physical sequence of action that is automatic eating [and] that’s one way to gain some control.”

Worth A Shot!

  2. Funny, I’m right handed but have always used me left hand to eat. I struggle to gain weight. I’ve had to come to terms that I will just be a skinny man, be happy with that and I’ll just keep eating the way I do.
