  • memory is the key to weight loss

    I just read this article that I found really interesting. There was a study done that showed that you can use memories of meals that you've eaten recently to help you to reduce the amount of food that you eat in the current meal. It's like a natural sort of appetite suppressant, using an easy mind trick. I think that sounds like a great way to lose weight more easily...if only it came in extra strength for me haha


    Food Memories Can Help With Weight Loss

    That's really odd. I guess you can convince yourself that you've already eaten a lot just by thinking about it. Power of the mind. Then again, by thinking of recent meals you've enjoyed, that might get your mouth watering, too!

      This completely blew my hair back. I had no idea that just thinking about a meal I'd had recently could actually work as an appetite suppressant. I'm going to test that out and see if it works for me. But Sarah, I completely agree that it's more likely that I'll just get more hungry

        Oddly, this works. I dont' find it works if you just think about eating an apple, but if you had a big lunch, for instance, and you visualize it at dinnertime, partway through the meal, you do start feeling more full. Or at least, I do!

          That seems to be how it works for me. I just gave it a try for two days. If I was going to be having a meal, I'd sit down and think of the last really great dinner I had that tasted amazing and made me very full. All it did was make me want to eat that meal again! When I did get to eat, I was starving. I guess I was either doing it wrong or it doesn't work for everybody. Hmmm...it's making me feel hungry now

            This works! I tried it for two dinners in a row. I thought about what I'd had for lunch and kept on envisioning it and after a while, I felt less hungry - so that's when I started eating!

              Hello Kyra,
              This is true. During diet, they need to concentrate on the quantity and calories of food. Memory is a key to weight loss.

                That's true for tracking calories, but I also found that Kyra's study was pretty interesting, too. I don't find that the memory technique works for me when I'm extremely hungry, but if I'm only moderately hungry, it can help to reduce the amount that I feel like eating at the time. Pretty interesting how much power the mind has, isn't it!

                  I have been testing this out this weekend and what I discovered is that the meal that you use in your memory to shrink your appetite has to be one that was very recent. If I can think about one from today or yesterday, it works alright. If I think back earlier than that, it isn't as effective. I think the memory has to be very fresh.
