Diet Secret #1: Your Brain is not reliable.

In the spirit of the holidays I am doing a diet series. I have compiled the top 10 best diet secrets so you can torture yourself instead of drinking some eggnog.

Your brain is not reliable.

In study after study, people underestimate how much they eat, partly because they tend to overlook how much is actually in a serving. If you mindlessly snack on cereal, pretzels, or any other "harmless" snack-- start measuring how much you are actually eating. Once you realize your walk-by handfuls are mounting up to a whopping 600 calories to day... you are going to think twice.

Measure what you are eating when you can, then you will have an idea what that amount looks like.
