According to the Los Angeles Times, if you are looking for ways to cut back on what you eat; try cutting everything into smaller pieces – you may eat less.

A study found that slicing candies in half caused people to eat less of the snacks, ultimately consuming fewer calories. The research, published in the May issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, put 54 college students through two scenarios: in one, 20 pieces of candy were served whole. In another, the 20 candies were cut in half. In both scenarios the test subjects busied themselves with a computer task that acted as a distraction, since snacking is often done while preoccupied. Those who ate the larger pieces consumed about 60 calories more than those who ate the smaller pieces. No substantial differences were found in the groups regarding hunger, how much the test subjects liked the candies, and whether they ate candy on a regular basis.

This trick may sound pretty basic but for people who want to lose small pockets of fat on the thighs or other visible areas this could be one of many methods they may try. Dr. O’Toole explains that for some people no matter which diet they pick the stubborn fat pockets remain. Every person’s body is predisposed to carry weight in certain areas. Dr. O’Toole recommends liposuction to remove these fat pockets strategically and creates the most shapely appearance. Dr. O’Toole offers both Smartlipo as well as traditional liposuction.
