Desiring to be skinny and slim and that too through the process of dieting, then you better start taking notes!

Planning for a diet routine in order to lose weight? Count your bites rather than calculating the calories!

An attention-grabbing yet significant discovery in the field of science has once again modernized the dimensions of health and physical wellbeing.

A new dieting style has been initiated, which is absolutely trouble-free – as it allows you to count your bites for cracking weight. Based on a new study, people who counted their bites for a period of one month revealed incredible results as they lost around four pounds.

Going through a small-scale trial, the partakers decided to take 20 to 30 percent less bites for the next four weeks and witnessed jaw-dropping results, particularly for those who remained firm throughout the challenge. Keeping in mind the fact that the participants were not inclined to alter their eating patterns as well as their exercise routines.

Lead study author, Dr Josh West, from Brigham Young University, said: 'This study confirms what we already knew, consuming less food makes a difference.

'We're not advocating people starve themselves, what we're talking about is people eating less than they're currently eating.'

Dr. West along with co-authors Dr. Ben Crookston and professor Cougar Hall claimed that individuals who are bulky according to their age should start concentrating on the quantitative aspects of food rather than the qualitative aspects. If they keep a track of their average number of bites, they may be able to shed lose.

The study involved 61 participants who were asked to calculate and keep a track of the number of times they opened up their mouth along with the number of gulps of liquids, excluding water, per day.

As part of the results, 41 participants who successfully finished the experiment were pretty satisfied with the consequences. Dr Crookston on the other hand, assert that still, there is more research to be conducted in order to further authenticate the results, particularly for long term effects of dieting.

'We felt pretty good about how much weight they lost given the relatively short span of the study,' he said.

In a nutshell, individuals who are pretty enthusiastic about shedding their weights should try to follow the latest research. Even a 20 percent reduction in bites can actually make a difference and is undoubtedly doable and practical for those who are seeking ways to lose weight.
