If you want to eat less when you sit down for a meal, try listening to slow and steady music while eating. It apparently will slow down your food intake.
The presence of a downbeat tempo influences how much people scoff their food, because we have a tendency to subconsciously eat to the beat of the music.
The journal, Appetite, found that the tempo of music has long been linked to levels of excitement - a quicker beat raises the heart rate while a slower rhythm induces relaxation.
