What the fork?

Yeah, I had to!

I remember hearing years ago that eating with a smaller fork would help trick your brain into thinking you’re eating more.  Small forks make food look bigger!  Small forks fit less, making it last longer!  Small forks are more work!

Recently, I’d heard a few people talking about eating with BIG forks!  Apparently, I’m late on this one because everything I found about it was from 2011!  Bigger forks show you’re making progress on your “goal” of finishing your meal!  Goal progress is satisfying!

Now I don’t know what fork to use.

Either way, it’s all in your head.  I go for eating proper portions and making that my satisfying goal progress…sticking to my plan is mentally satisfying! For me, that makes more of a difference than a visual satisfaction.  But if you are a more visual person and think that your fork size may make a difference, do a bit of experimenting!  Find what works for you!

So what do you think?  Small fork or big fork?
