“It’s easy to overeat. In fact, overeating is pretty much built into our culture.

Weight loss trick #1: Eat in Front of a Mirror

The next time you find yourself alone with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s, take a look at yourself in the mirror.

Half the participants faced the mirror, and half were blissfully ignorant.

While both groups tasted the no and low-fat versions freely, those looking in the mirror were less apt to slather on the regular cream cheese.

In fact, they ate 32 percent less of the full-fat cream cheese.

(This tip gives new meaning to the words watching your weight, doesn’t it?)” To read the entire article click here.
