Set the mood. Nutrition scientist Dr. Brian Wansink says rooms with candlelight and soft music help people eat about 120 fewer calories per meal… Compared to eating somewhere bright and loud. That’s because a relaxed atmosphere encourages us to chew more slowly, so we take about 8 minutes longer to eat… Which may just be long enough for our brain to register our stomach’s “I’m full” signals.
