Participants were offered 18 different products. Volunteers were assessed calorie food, and then determines which portion of it will be enough to stave off hunger. In most cases, the portions were too large, and as a result people are consuming more calories than if adhered to the regular menu.
In another study, Dr. Branshtormom organized, attended by children. In the experiment, the young creation in the age of 10-12 years have offered six different types of junk food and fast food were asked to say how much they could eat. It was found that children whose parents are limited in the consumption of sweets, more than others overeat sweets and chocolate, because they could not stop in time. But the children, who themselves bought their sweets correctly identify caloric intake and choose small portions.
According to the researchers, restricting access to certain products and knowledge of the limits of their properties. In addition, the absence of any control (eat all you want) helps to ensure that low-calorie foods to eat large portions. In it lies the main error!
