Eat with your left hand to lose weight

How are you doing with your New Year's Resoultion?  You know, the one where you vowed to consume fewer calories this year.

For many, reducing daily calories is a constant, difficult struggle, so I wanted to share a trick that might help you: eat with your non-dominant hand.

Why?  Researchers from the University of Southern California found people who snacked with their non-dominant hand ate 30% less than those who did not.  Using the non-dominant hand, they found, interrupts the mindless eating cycle so many of us become victims of.

Reducing calories may be as simple as switching up the place setting, and that would be glorious, wouldn't it?  Try out your non-dominant hand when you reach for your mid-day snack.  Move your fork to the other side of the dinner plate tonight.  Who knows, this may be one diet trick you find helpful, another to add to your growing arsenal of weight loss tricks.  You can never have too many, right?
