You Can Trick Yourself Into Feeling Fuller

Satiety is a feeling of fullness. It can be influenced by different types of food, and also by your expectations. Consider the findings of a new study presented at a meeting of the British Psychological Society that suggests what you eat might not be as important as what you think you ate.
 
Researchers prepared 3-egg omelets for 26 people. Some were told they had a 2-egg omelet while others believed their omelet was made with 4 eggs. Subjects who were convinced they has a smaller omelet reported being hungrier 2 hours later and consumed more pasta at lunch compared to subjects who were told their breakfast was larger.
