Looking to lose weight? There’s a new way to drop a few pounds that will have you eating less without even knowing it.
A new product out of Japan called “Diet Glasses” uses computers to trick the human mind into thinking it’s consuming large, delicious treats when, in fact, it’s not at all.
So how exactly do diet glasses work – and are they really effective in helping individuals lose weight?
Researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed this product which, when worn, uses “computer wizardry and augmented reality” to trick the human senses into feeling satisfied with smaller, less appealing snacks. When wearing the glasses, the user will see their hands the same size as normal but the treat will appear bigger than it actually is.
While it seems unbelievable that these glasses can actually trick someone into eating less, the developers insist they work. Experiments revealed that consumers ate nearly 10 percent less when the biscuits appeared 50 percent larger than their actual size.
Losing weight and looking super cool at the same time? It’s a win/win situation, right?
Would you use these glasses to help control how much you eat?
