Tried every diet under the sun and still can’t seem to lose a single pound? Maybe you’re wearing the wrong glasses.
International news service AFP reports University of Tokyo researchers have invented virtual reality goggles that can make food look much bigger than it really is (while hands still look the same size), tricking folks into thinking they’re eating more. People testing it ate 10 percent less when a cookie was made to look 50 percent bigger than it actually was, the news service says.
Make the cookie look two thirds smaller? People ate 15 percent more, according to AFP.
We’re intrigued. But we’re not really sure we’re prepared to wear diet goggles in public.
