Imagination Diet

 

 

If eating real food makes you gain weight, try imagining that you are eating the forbidden food instead. That's the consensus of the latest diet trend.

After conducting a test with subjects imagining that they were eating 30 M&M candies, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University concluded that the brain releases dopamine in the brain suggesting satisfaction just as if the subjects had actually eaten the candy.

It seems that thinking and looking at a forbidden food makes the dieter only want more of the food. Pretending to actually eat and taste the delectable food item diminishes the desire.
