Meal illusions: this is why we eat more than we should
Have you ever wondered why those who had paint colours with a restaurant and why the plate is served in the form of food? Countless research has laid the foundation for trick repository, which stores and restaurants to take our appetite for consumption - consumption in many cases more than what we wanted. Obesity is one of the reasons that we can easily fool the body has the delicate sensing system, which would regulate to eat just as much as we need. Let's see how!
1. Larger Plate consume more
More research observed that the thicker the white, empty part of the completed area around the smaller the will disappear - right?
2. The plate`s colour matters too
The closer the colour of the plate of food, the more we'll eat it, because our brains too much preoccupied to separate the food from the background, so there is not enough capacity to assess correctly the amount and so we are going to take the food more. The reverse is also true, however: the higher the contrast between the plate and the colour of the food, the less it matures in particular caught.
3. Heavily spiced foods to eat more
Normally we do not feel the food taste after a few bite cause we get used to it, thus reducing the nutritional value of experience and the mere consumption will be affected when we start to be full from the particular food. We can cheat with a poor seasoning, which can give us a longer joy when for example we are eating a good spicy steak potato, regardless of nutrition we will only eat for the experience, what makes the combination of flavours and fragrances. Much more than it should.
4. We eat more after a salty appetizer and drink more next to a salty snack
The no coincidence that better pubs offer peanuts on the table, because if the guest are chewing this they going to order more drinks. Likewise, the salty appetizers are appetite booster and the sweets are appetite suppressant. (Not by accident our mums said don`t eat chocolate before the meal)
5. The larger the company, the more we eat
Research has shown that the amount of food consumed in the company in direct proportion to the number of those present, so regardless of whether we are hungry or not, we are going to eat a lot from many people.
6. The “foodporn” take your appetite
Instagram is full with toothsome and delicious pictures about food these are not good to our diet: they all generate appetite, so you will want to eat continuously even if you're not hungry.
7. The blue light in turn reduces the appetite
In one experiment, it was observed that those who light blue fitted into the refrigerator, do not eat out as much. This is probably aware of the context that it is not very blue foods we eat, so do not come out of her appetites, when blue light appears in front of us will be our favourite.
8. The yellow and red colour bring you the best appetite
It is enough to watch the well-known fast-food restaurant`s colours, and you can see that it is not a coincidence: the red colour is especially appetizing effect, yellow and enhance a good mood, that we eat and feel good in such an environment.
9. Various dishes we eat more than if there is only one type of cuisine
The novelty and variety needs an important motivating factor for the meals, which was founded not by chance somewhere so if you think about it, because evolution is thus ensures that all the necessary nutrients and do not eat ourselves, take unilaterally. On the other hand, if there are eight kinds of cookies on the table, you're going to eat at least twice as much as if it were only one.
