Ordering Dessert First Could Help You Lose Weight

Do you feel bad for loving desserts and want to eat it all the time but you don’t because it’s bad for you. Well a new study has found that ordering your dessert first might help you lose weight.

Researchers monitored what people ate in a cafeteria, and changed up how the desserts were offered. Sometimes they let people choose their dessert first, before they grabbed their meal.  Sometimes they made them grab it after their meal.

Over the course of four days, 70% of people consumed fewer calories when they ordered their dessert first.

One of the options was cheesecake.  And when people ordered it first, they consumed an average of 250 fewer calories compared to when they ordered it after their meal.

The researchers say the reason all comes down to our psychology.  Everyone knows dessert isn’t very healthy.  And when we indulge at the beginning of a meal, we compensate by ordering less of everything else.
