How to suppress the desire for chocolate
Health & Beauty / /
The scientists have a rather unusual solution. A recent study by Stanford and Carnegie Mellon University has found a new way to suppress the desire for a particular food: overdose yourself with something that you want. until you get sick!
Okay, it might work, but it's not the healthiest way to stop consuming certain types of foods.
The research was conducted in a way that scientists divided the 43 participants of the experiment into two groups. They were all students who adore chocolate, both male and female. The first group received one milk chocolate candy and the other group four candies. Then the two groups were asked to rate how much they liked the candy.
The results showed that those who ate a smaller dose liked the candy more than those who ate four. Likewise, the group that ate four candies later wanted less sugar, although at the beginning of the experiment, both enjoyed equally in chocolate.
However, since this is not the healthiest way to suppress the desire for chocolates, we suggest some healthier solutions:
Choose a salad for breakfast
Another study showed that this approach of eating makes the entire meal healthier, meaning that it can be accepted as a good excuse of the intake of reasonable intake of chocolate.
Choose a healthier version of what you want
For example, if what you love is sugar, why don’t you reach for it in an apple instead of chocolate?
Have a good sleep
It has been scientifically proven that sleep deprivation means greater appetite and potentially a grater intake of sugar.
A 15-minute walk can halve the intake of chocolate that average person eats throughout the day, even when the day is stressful.
The next time you would feel a desire to eat a bar of chocolate just don’t - instead, go for a short walk.
