What You See Is What You Eat

Researchers at Cornell University offered a group of students a free lunch for several weeks. Unbeknownst to the students, everything they ate was measured and weighed.
Each week the amount of food served was increased. Each week the students ate whatever was on their plates. Portions of soup, pasta, breadsticks and ice cream increased significantly during the course of the study, and the students simply ate what was in front of them. The scientists concluded that portion size determines calorie intake.

TIP If it's on your plate, you will eat it. So take small portions.
