It’s like eating in front of the TV – you’re distracted. But if it’s desktop dining or nothing, do this: Bring real silverware from home. According to the University of Oxford, people who use real utensils eat less because they enjoy their food 10% MORE! That’s because the heavier utensils send a subliminal message that your meal is higher quality. A heavier fork also helps you slow down and be a more mindful eater. Put it all together and you’ll end up eating less, while being more satisfied.
