What to do: Here is a tip popular from Europe. During a meal in a darker space, we don’t notice how much food is left on our plate and end up eating exactly as much as we need.
What happened: To me, eating in semidarkness appeared festive and almost like a ritual. Enjoying the atmosphere, I ate more slowly. I savored the food and got fuller faster.
Our verdict: This works but possibly for another reason.
Tip #8: Choose foods that are digested more slowly.
