Men's Health (South Africa) - - WEIGHT LOSS -

Ditch the word diet; it could be mess­ing with your por­tion size. The In­ter­na­tional Jour­nal of Obe­sity re­ports that peo­ple in a study per­ceived “healthy” foods – say, low-fat op­tions or plain ce­real vs. sug­ary – to con­tain fewer kilo­joules than stan­dard ver­sions, though they were equiv­a­lent. They then took larger por­tions of stuff that sounded health­ier.
