A new study has discovered that our mood for food can be changed by a restaurant’s choice of music and lighting, leading to increased satisfaction and REDUCED calorie intake (NOTE: The PRICE has now been reduced too!) Can’t afford a restaurant? Maybe that’s even better. Turn the lights down at home, light the candles, get out the good napkins and turn on soothing music–and DINE (and finish with a good cup of coffee).
A weight researcher claims that dieters have less hunger and cravings throughout the day and are better able to keep off lost weight if they eat dessert after breakfast.
Endocrinologist Daniela Jakubowicz says, "The goal of a weight loss diet should be not only weight reduction but also reduction of hunger and cravings, thus helping prevent weight regain." She and her team studied nearly 200 nondiabetic obese adults who were randomly assigned to eat one of two low-calorie diets. Both diets had the same number of daily calories–about 1,600 for men and 1,400 for women–but differed mainly in what they ate immediately afterwards.
