I thoroughly enjoy the little things in life, like finding crunchy leaves to step on. (BONUS: when you find $16 because you were looking at the ground for leaves to step on.)
I grew up as a military brat, so I've gotten really good at packing uHaul trucks. You haven't lived till you've driven a 26 foot uHaul with a full sized car trailer behind it in driving rain down an interstate.
I have two cats, named Snickers and Widget. I swear they're Pinky and the Brain reincarnated in real life. Snickers is super smart, and Widget...well, Widget is cute.
I love chocolate, I adore macaroni and cheese, and I just can't pass up a serving of frozen yogurt, all of which tells me one thing: I'm actually five.
Imagine if you could simply "think" yourself thinner. What if I told you that's entirely possible?
There's a new study out that gave some people a small bowl of soup, and others a large bowl.
What the people who were eating the large bowl of soup didn't know was that as they were eating it, it was also being siphoned away from the bottom. Both groups wound up eating the same amount of soup.
The results were very interesting. The study found that that those who ate the small bowl of soup were still hungry after eating it, although the feeling faded after a couple hours.
Those that who were given the large bowl of soup (although they ate the same amount of soup as those who were given the small bowl) reported feeling full.
This is apparently linked to memory. If your brain remembers that you had a big bowl of soup and doesn't realize some of the soup has been drained away, it sends the "full" feeling to your stomach.
For instance, there are amnesia patients who will eat 4 or 5 meals right after the other because they don't remember eating any of the others, and their brain hasn't sent the "full signal".
Now all we need to do is for someone to come up with a set of dishes to slowly suck away some of the food you've served yourself so you can trick your brain into helping you lose weight.
