Eat in Front of a Mirror to Lose Weight

1014Iowa State University surveyed 320 college students while individually offering them bagels and the options of no-fat, low-fat and regular cream cheese. The half of the participants that ate in front of a mirror proved to be 32% less likely to slather on fattening, regular cream cheese. Such insight suggests that if you’re trying to lose weight, sitting with a mirror in your eye line and checking your reflection could help.*

The habit of watching yourself in the mirror as you eat is meant to remind you that the purpose of eating is for nourishment above all else. Looking at yourself in the mirror while you eat can also help you to reflect on your personal standards and weight-loss goals.
