Okay, I am watching Good Morning America in Vancouver and the Seattle station is how I get ABC.
They are running these commercials regarding IHOP offering unlimited pancakes at their restaurants.
PLEASE don’t take them up on this offer. In general, avoid buffets and anything that is labeled “All You Can Eat.”
All the research points to the fact that when we are offered more food, we eat more food. When we are offered more choices, we eat more food.
Don’t forget, I just came back from a week on a cruise before Christmas. EVERYDAY featured some sort of buffet, and some days there were two. I had to just pick what I had determined (once I took a look at the whole offering) and then leave the room with the food.
Research shows that heavier people:
1. Sit closer to the buffet
2. Sit looking at the buffet
I moved away as I thought “Out of site, out of mind.” The research agrees.
