TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTADiet is somewhat easier to say than done. Dieting is not an easy task. You think the main goal is just to start eating healthy foods, but the hard thing is adopting new diet habits. In fact, sometimes it's absurdly difficult, especially to get started.

So here are some weird but effective psychological tricks that you can try to do at home. Let’s check it out.

1. Always choose the smallest portion available

Not because you already know what food you want to eat than you skip the menu the food shop has. Take your time to read the menu. Choose the smallest portion they have or ask the waitress to reduce the portion they usually provide.

2. Bring banana wherever you go

Do you think it’s weird? Indeed. But there is nothing wrong to do it, especially if it was for your diet. As reported by The Brightside, a study involving 3,000 volunteers who kissed bananas when they were hungry found that their appetite decreased and ultimately made them able to watch their scale decreasing. Isn't it amazing?

3. Eating alone is better than eating with friends

When you start making changes in your diet, you usually want your friends and family to help you through this moment. However, it is scientifically proven that people who eat in groups eat more. And it makes you have no control over how much food have you taken while spending your time busy chit chatting with them.

4. The power of blue

One recent study showed that the color blue decreases appetite. So try some changes such as decorating your dining table with blue tablecloths, blue napkins, blue plates, and all other tableware of the same color.

5. Eat in front of the mirror

It sounds crazy but the scientific fact is convincing that eating while looking at yourself in the mirror reduces the amount of food you eat by a third.

6. Believe that you can do it

Believing in yourself that you can do your Diet is the key to everything. Let your brain know that you are on a diet, that you will do it no matter what comes ahead. Positive word and self-hypnotism such as “I will only eat what my body needs” or “my body doesn't need more fat” can be a powerful charm for you. (*)
