Look at these and watch the pounds fall off

Dieting is hard. There’s no doubt about it.

Whether you’re counting calories, counting or cycling carbs, going paleo or doing South Beach, changing what you eat and how much of it is a challenge.

But, before you ask your doctor for a prescription diet pill and suffer its side effects like stomach pain and cramping, gas and even the inability to control your bowel movements, try something painless…

A trick that can help you automatically eat less so that you can lose the weight and get slim more easily — looking at pictures while you eat.

Now, these aren’t just any pictures and there is a science behind it.

The pictures you need to look at are ones of slim people and the reason it works even has a very scientific-sounding name.

It’s called the “Giacometti effect.”

What Italian sculpture has to do with losing weight

You see, the phenomenon was first noted when people who were looking at thin, human-like sculptures by the artist Alberto Giacometti ate less.

In fact, using these fit-looking sculptures as environmental cues has been found to facilitate dieting by reducing chocolate intake and promoting healthy snack choices.

And, the effect works for what researchers called reducing the unhealthy food intake of “motivated eaters.” By that they meant that the artworks reduced consumption among those who found an unhealthy food particularly tasty.

Even better, the result remains powerful when your mind is preoccupied by other things.

In the most recent study analyzing this “Giacometti effect”, 128 volunteers sat in a small cubicle with just a computer screen.

For half of the participants, the screen saver showed pictures of three of Giacometti’s thin sculptures while the other half had only a white screen. They were also given a two or ten digit number to memorize.

Researchers then provided each volunteer with 20 potato chips and told they could eat as many as they wanted.

Those exposed to pictures of the slim sculptures ate less than those with a white screen.

The effect was limited to those who actually liked potato chips, meaning that for the people who were “motivated to eat” the chips, seeing the thin pictures helped them to eat less.

And, memorization of the two or ten digit number had no effect on participants.

This is important because it showed that the effect was still powerful despite the daily distractions people experience during eating.

How you can use the “Giacometti Effect” to lose weight

So, how can you use this effect to lose weight and get the body you want?

The answer is simple.

When you sit down to eat, you can either choose a picture of one of Giacometti’s skinny sculptures to look at or a shot of a thin person.

Either works based on the same phenomenon.

By looking at a thin body, you’re motivated to eat less, making dieting easier. Put the “Giacometti effect” to work for you to eat less and lose more starting now.
