Today I was waiting for my husband at the doctor’s office. I looked through a little mini-magazine that said “WebMD” and “Diabetes” on it. One page had some advice for holiday eating, including the strangest such advice I’d seen in a while:
Wear something snug: In a big, flowing dress or loose pants, you won’t be able to tell when you overeat. Instead, Weisenberger suggests wearing slimmer-fitting clothes. That way, you’ll feel the tightening the moment you’ve had too many hors d’oeuvres.
This Weisenberger character may be surprised to learn that humans have built-in sensory mechanisms that can tell them how full their stomach is.
