Size does matter?

Do you know that if you are given a larger plate of food or a larger can drink, you would mindlessly eat more?

These days, there are so many food products from burgers to drinks with an upsized option. And clever marketing schemes would also promote that it is better for value!

For instance, if you are given a 500ml can of coconut water, you are likely to finish that can in one sitting. However, if you are only provided a 330ml can of coconut water, you would just be having that amount instead.

If you do not want to mindlessly overeat, choose a smaller package over the larger one. Likewise, choose a smaller plate over a larger one, so that the amount of food looks “more”. And, you might still feel peckish if you place the same quantity of food on a large plate.

Of course, if there is still room for seconds, you may go ahead!
