Over-Eating Results in Weight Gain: Study

In a presentation at the Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association, Brian Wansink, PhD, Food Psychologist at Cornell University states that over-eating resulted in an uncontrollable weight gain.

Mr. Wansink revealed that unconsciously eating unhealthy food can be replaced with eating healthier food, which further leads to weight loss. He suggests that eating in smaller plates will help control the increasing weight.

Mr. Wansink conducted a study on 168 people watching movies at a theatre after having dinner. They were provided with fresh and stale popcorns in different-sized containers. The result of the study revealed that around 34-45% ate more popcorn that was served in the big popcorn containers in comparison to the ones served in large containers.

Therefore, Mr. Wansink suggests fighting the unconscious eating by changing your surroundings that attracts you to eat food in excess. Moreover, people should be served meals in salad plates rather than on big dinner plates, which influences the quantity of food intake

As per Mr. Wansink at the APA, "Most of us have too much chaos going on in our lives to consciously focus on every bite we eat, and then ask ourselves if we're full. The secret is to change your environment so it works for you rather than against you”.
