This is Scientific American’s 60-Second Science. I’m Steve Mirsky. Got a minute?
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, one major question looms1 large for millions of large Americans: Are my fat pants fat enough?
Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season foodfest, a six-week stretch when diets and belts will be severely2 strained. So what can be done to keep the gluttony under something resembling control?
Brian Wansink directs the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab and is the author of the book Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think. His research has revealed that simply serving food on a 10-inch plate rather than a 12-inch plate could lead to a more than 20 percent reduction in calories, with the meal still being satisfying. He also found that even other food researchers ate more than half as much ice cream if they served themselves with big bowls and big scoops3 versus4 smaller bowls and scoops.
You can catch Wansink's tips beyond the smaller plate in a video for the Food Insight Blog, at snipurl.com/briantday. But as he told Prevention magazine, if there’s one day all year for some guilt-free indulgence, Thanksgiving is it.
Thanks for the minute. For Scientific American’s 60-Second Science, I’m Steve Mirsky.
