A study posted on Cosmopolitan's website says that scientists from the Unversity of Minnesota and Texas A&M University found that paying close attention to eating unhealthy foods makes you more likely to eat less unhealthy foods.
Additionally, paying attention while eating unhealthy foods makes you feel satisfied quicker. Participants who counted the number of times they swallowed while eating unhealthy snacks said they felt fuller sooner.
Even if these results are true, there is no numerical evidence to support the data. The sample population as well as other conditions were not provided by the researchers. Because of the obvious missing information, a reader must be critical and skeptical when analyzing this research study.
