You know those little taste-test bites you take while cooking? They don’t do as much damage to your diet as you may think! Dr. Brian Wansink is a nutritional science expert. He says people who nibble while preparing food – then sit down to a full meal – eat 57% FEWER calories than if they wait to eat until the cooking is done. Dr. Wansink says having a small snack actually shuts down hunger pangs and food cravings… So when you do sit down to eat, you’re not ravenous and end up overeating. So, go ahead and sample your cooking!
