iVillage.com: 25 Little Changes for Big Weight Loss Results

Fill Your (Small) Plate

According to Brian Wansink, Ph.D., a behavioral scientist and ‘mindless eating’ expert at the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab, people who fill their plate with everything they plan to eat (including dessert) eat about 14 percent less than those who don’t fill it as much but return for second helpings.

Wansink found that subjects who served themselves using smaller dishes ate up to 60 percent less.
