Do you of­ten eat on the run or snack your way through the day? If so, then you may not even reg­is­ter or re­mem­ber what you’ve eaten, say sci­en­tists. In a study of 80 peo­ple, those who ate a pasta dish as a snack (eaten stand­ing up from a plas­tic pot with a plas­tic fork) later went on to eat 50% more food than those who ate the dish as a meal (eaten seated at a ta­ble off a ce­ramic plate with a metal fork). So if you can re­train your­self to think of all food as a meal – even if it is a snack – then you’ll be­come more at­tuned to your hunger and full­ness cues, and au­to­mat­i­cally eat less.

Treat each snack like a minia­ture meal
