According to this article, getting all your food on one plate instead of going back for seconds can result in 14% less food eaten.

Good article. They mentioned spending 30 minutes at a meal and "distracted dining." One of the things that I think leads to eating less is to pay attention when you're eating. The only other things one should be doing while eating is enjoying the company. We eat and read, watch TV, drive, get ready for work, and more and don't remember eating and enjoying the food.

The author of that study showing that people who don't take seconds eat 14% less than those who do is Brian Wansink. I love his "Mindless Eating". It gave me some good ideas for mods in the spirit of No S.

The article also mentioned the Nine Inch Diet, which I combine with No S.

Great article, but I wouldn't give any personal information to that site, if I could help it. RealAge at least used to give information to drug companies:

I don't know if they still do, but I wouldn't trust them with my email address.

I'm pretty sure Reinhard cites this exact source in the No-S book, in the chapter dedicated to No Seconds. Good stuff.

Sometimes, distractions are good when you eat, though I agree that most people don't pay attention enough to their food. I eat alone a lot, so I don't have pauses for conversation. I find that some distractions can slow me down. I will pay attention to something on the computer or stop and read a paragraph more carefully in a book between bites. I am very good at eating my meals slowly and savoring my food. I almost always finish after everyone else if I do share meals.

I am pretty sure some research has shown that people absorb more nutrients when they like their food.

My favorite thing about this number is that it is 14. :-)

I see a t-shirt design coming on... Perhaps a 14 on the back, jersey style?

Doesn't that Latin phrase mean more like no pain, no gain?

I saw this article on the BBC (the full research article is linked within, and is free to read if you are so inclined!)

Basically the research states that the snacking between meals was a significant factor in amount of calories that are eaten on average in the US now (which is a third higher than 30 years ago). So snacking --> overeating --> obesity. Who knew?! ;)[/url]
