It can be fun to feed a high-chair bound kid a meal using those diminutive utensils.
But can a baby's fork help you lose weight?
Would you be willing to eat an entire meal with them? Try it. You'll discover something quite interesting. I've recommended this fun idea to a lot of people. They always come back with one of two reactions.
The first reaction is many quit using baby's plastic flatware rather quickly. They get frustrated with the slowness of shoveling the food in.
The second reaction is that those who stuck it out all reported eating less in the meal.
Your body is amazing. When you eat fast, your body just lets you do it. When you eat more slowly, your body has the time to react and send your brain a signal that tells you to eat less.
That is exactly the point. Eating more slowly curbs your appetite. When you do that regularly, you will lose weight steadily.
So, if you really want to eat less in every meal, use whatever strategy you can. But a simple one is to eat with a baby's fork or spoon.
Would eating with a baby's fork really make your day lighter?
(BTW, Celebrate Premium Chocolate Truffles were designed from scratch to curb your appetite and stop your cravings by taking advantage of this phenomenon – plus some other equally powerful ones. Just savor them 20 minutes before your meal. See the reviews. It really works.)
