eating in the dark is more likely to have a sense of fullness
scientists have found that when people eat in the dark, their food intake will be reduced and they are more likely to have a sense of fullness.
the researchers divided 90 subjects equally into two groups and gave each of them an ice cream with the same taste and equal amount. One group was blindfolded, while the other group was blindfolded and ate in the dark.
experimental results showed that compared with the subjects without blindfold, the subjects with blindfold were more likely to have a sense of fullness and eat less ice cream, and the latter ate 9% less than the former. However, blindfolded subjects mistook themselves for eating more ice cream. The researchers found that subjects without blindfold thought they ate 33% of the total ice cream, while blindfold subjects mistakenly thought they ate 88%.
“ In the process of human evolution, we mainly rely on vision to judge the safety of food and the amount of food we eat. Once the diners are blindfolded, they can not directly see the type, quantity, color and appearance of food. They can only perceive food by smell, touch and taste. However, these senses are not directly and accurately judged by vision, Therefore, eating in the dark will always make people feel uneasy, reduce their acceptance of food, and decrease their appetite. At the same time, people have the illusion that they have eaten a lot of food, so they are more likely to feel full& rdquo; One researcher said, & lt; This finding should be a good thing for those who want to lose weight& rdquo;
