• The Calorie Reduction Summit 2018, London - Tues 26th June 9am

Portion size – why and how it matters, and what to do about it

11:05 - 11:20

Eating more than we require to maintain a healthy weight is not strongly resisted by our biology. Consequently, large portions of energy dense food promote excessive eating. To be competitive, however, smaller food portions need to be satisfying. Peter Rogers will talk through his latest studies and research on how this might be achieved by attentive eating and enhancing flavour and variety in the meal (i.e., trading quantity for quality), to maximise ‘pleasure per calorie consumed’, and what this means for manufacturers looking to reduce calories but not market share.
