“It is psychologically proven that for a certain amount of food when we pick the bigger plate, it is the human tendency of perception that makes that amount of food look smaller in relation to the size of the plate, which makes us pile on more food. Whereas the same amount of food on a smaller plate would visually signal our mind to feel like we are eating enough,” stated Prachi Purii in one of her YouTube videos.
Put Snacks in Opaque Containers Instead of Transparent ones
Most of the time it happens that when you cannot see food put in a container, you would not mindlessly want it or eat it. So, it is advisable to keep your snacks in opaque containers.
Don’t Fall For the Guilt of Having a Cheat Meal
“When we restrict ourselves too much, we get into the mindset of extreme dieting. This means you are restricting yourself to a point that even if you have one unhealthy food, you feel like you have ruined your entire progress and you have failed yourself so much that you might just binge and eat everything and that’s what creates a very unhealthy relationship with food. Binge eating out of guilt is like slashing the other three tyres of your car because one of them got punctured. You are not going to become fat by eating just one unhealthy food. So, do not beat yourself up. Just, go back to eating as you would.”
