…especially if it’s something crunchy. Because hearing your own munching helps you eat less. Researchers from Brigham Young University found people ate more pretzels when ambient sounds drowned out the crunch. It’s all down to being mindful. Because, when we can hear ourselves chewing, we’re more cognizant of what we’re eating. It’s like being in a restaurant and slurping your soup – and suddenly you feel like everyone’s staring because you’re so loud – so you slurp less, right? Well, when we hear ourselves chomping, even when we’re alone, we stop eating sooner.
