Do You Feel Less Hungry Because You Think You Ate More Than You Actually Did?

Do You Feel Less Hungry Because You Think You Ate More Than You Actually Did?


New research done by Nutrition and Behavior Unit, School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, United Kingdom, has come to a surprising and possible useful conclusion.  In the study, subjects had the amount of soup they ate more than they actually did.

According to the study, immediately after lunch, participants reported the degree to which they were still hungry.  Their scores aligned with the actual amount of soup they ate, not the perceived amount.  However, 2-3 hours later, the opposite was true and hunger scores correlated with how much soup they perceived they ate.  Researchers believe this may prove memory is an important and independent part of satiety.

A very wise man once said, “Thoughts become things.”  It sounds like he was somewhat correct, at least for hunger.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been seeing Dr. Jon for 11 years. When I began seeing him, my spine curved in the opposite direction of how it should. It is now curving in the right direction. Dr. Jon is extremely knowledgeable about chiropractic. He is holistic in his approach to better health. I highly recommend Dr. Jon."
