Study Finds That Remembering Recent Meals Helps Reduce Eating

March 18, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
British researchers who analyzed 24 studies on the effects of awareness and memory on food consumption found that remembering meals, being more aware of what’s being eaten, and paying attention to meals leads to eating less. The findings could improve weight loss programs, the researchers said, because simple awareness techniques can be adapted and taught easily. Writing down previous meals, using visual reminders of those meals, and even keeping food wrappers all help the remembering process.
