Study shows that meal size and regularity of meals affects children’s weight.


Weight loss can prove hard for some and hypnotherapy can provide a unique, fresh approach to it.

According to Reuters, shrinking the size of kids’ plates and bowls and encouraging them to eat more frequently throughout the day might help them eat less and keep off extra weight, new research has suggested. Research found that children served themselves smaller portions when using miniaturized dishware – and ate less food when they had less on their plate. Further research also showed that kids who ate during the day were 22 percent less likely to be overweight than those who ate the fewest meals and snacks.

Smaller portions at more regular intervals seemed to help keep extra weight off. While simple tactics may work for some, others may need a more complementary approach such as hypnotherapy. The National Council for Hypnotherapy is one of the UK’s most established hypnotherapist directory bringing local hypnotherapists to clients throughout Great Britain. Hypnotherapy has helped those suffering with weight issues aiding them to adjust the way they approach food and their habits towards it.
