Portion Control

Trying to pick up a space signal w/ that dish? Get a smaller one!

Remember that bullshit about moderation?

Of course you don’t, but just say you do!

Okay, now that we’ve established that you have a wonderful memory (and are also a liar), what if I told you that one of the best ways to stop eating like an asshole is to just eat your food from smaller plates?

Because it is!

In what’s known as the Delboeuf Illusion, the amount of white space around identical objects can cause us to perceive a difference in their size.

What the Delboeuf Illusion has to do with anything is that eating from larger plates makes you place more food on the plate or go back for more because your brain thinks that the portion isn’t enough, as opposed to your brain thinking the exact same portion is large enough when placed on a smaller dish.

So yeah, stop eating from plates the size of manhole covers!
