Thinking About Food Helps Stay Thin: Study
Researchers at Birmingham University are reporting that women who were encouraged to think about their last meal shunned snacks and stayed thin.

Female volunteers at the University were all given a big lunch and were then asked to either write about their meal or journey to the campus. Later on researchers offered them biscuits as snacks.

Women who wrote about their meal were less likely to binge on biscuits as compared to women who wrote about their journey to the campus, the researchers report in New Scientist magazine.

The present study is a direct contradiction to earlier studies which suggested that thinking about food made people hungry and hence increased obesity.
