What to do: Many dieticians recommend standing while eating because standing burns more calories. You get full faster and eat less.
What happened: I did eat less than usual but not because of getting full faster: I just got tired of standing around with a plate.
Our verdict: Yes, this works but not how it should. Also, when we are standing, the stomach is not compressed as compared to when we are sitting, so I’m surprised it works at all.
Tip #5: Hold cutlery with the “wrong” hand.
