When it comes to losing weight, many people think of strict diets and deprivation. However, there is a simple method to achieve your desired weight without having to give up your favorite foods.
That’s why you should eat with your non-dominant hand
Simply eat with your non-dominant hand. It may sound strange, but it works. Read here why eating with your left hand (for left-handers, eating with your right hand) can help with weight loss.
When it comes to losing weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume. That sounds simple, but in practice, many people find it difficult to change old habits.
However, British psychologist Richard Wiseman has developed a method that allows you to reach your goal weight without having to give up enjoyment. The only thing you need to do is to eat with your non-dominant hand in the future. Right-handers should eat with their left hand, while left-handers should eat with their right hand.
Does the hand trick really help with weight loss?
By eating with your non-dominant hand, you automatically eat slower and more consciously. This leads to eating less, as the feeling of satiety only sets in after about 20 minutes.
Normally, during this time, you would have already devoured a second portion and realized too late that you have already eaten too much. In addition, mindful eating promotes attention to portion sizes and helps to consume smaller portions overall.
