Attention Chronic Dieters…Stay Away From Food in Small Packages!

According to new research published in the Journal of Consumer Research, “restrained” and chronic dieters will consume more calories if they are eating small foods in small packages (e.g. small bag of M&M’s or bite-sized 100 calorie Oreo cookie packs) as compared to “unrestrained” eaters who are not constantly dieting.  Unrestrained eaters will consume more calories from large foods in a large package. That being said, your best bet is to stay away from packaged foods all together…choosing fresh, unprocessed foods, like fresh fruits and vegetables, raw nuts and seeds, and fresh protein like fish and organic meat.  Here’s to focusing less on seductive and misleading packaging and focusing more on quality nutrition to stay lean and vital.
