One study found that French servings were, on average, 25% smaller than North American portions. This finding was consistent in both restaurants and in cookbooks. And numerous recent studies have indicated – unsurprisingly – that when we’re served less food, we eat less.
Additionally, French adults eat at a more leisurely pace, taking almost twice the time to eat a meal compared to Americans. There is evidence to suggest that eating a meal over a longer period of time can lead to a sense of being full and satisfied with smaller portions.
So, use common sense when it comes to doling out your portions. And take your time while eating. These factors could make a big difference in your creating a healthier lifestyle. Take advantage of whole food nutrition
