Is eating healthier on your list of New Year’s resolutions? If so, boy do I have the perfect tip for you.
New research suggests that simply putting a mirror in your dining room (or wherever you eat) can make unhealthy foods taste less delicious.
Basically, when you literally watch what you eat, that chocolate cake won’t taste as good.
According to the researchers who conducted the study, “Mirrors can push people to compare and match their behaviors with social standards of correctness. When you fail to follow the standards, you may not want to see yourself in the mirror because it enhances the discomfort of the failure. Thus, the presence of a mirror induces discomfort and lowers the perceived taste of the unhealthy food.”
