Study: Small bites may make you fuller

Posted:

New research suggests taking small bites may trick your brain into thinking you're full faster.

Researchers gave over 300 college students a full bagel, or one that was cut into four pieces. They were later given a free lunch. Those who had the bagel cut into pieces ate 25% less of their lunch.

Experts say eating four pieces may have tricked their brains into thinking they had more food, while a full bagel is seen as a single portion.
