            Swap Sides

A recent study showed that if you eat with your nondominant hand you can reduce what you eat by 30% because it breaks up that automatic hand-to-mouth flow. If you have trouble slowing down, put your utensil in your other hand. It's inconvenient, it's awkward, and you cannot go fast.

I might try this.  I do alot of things with my nondominant hand, though, so I wonder how it would work.  I'm not ambidextrous by any means but I make sure to use it.

Sounds like fun. I wonder who will make a bigger mess my 2yr old or me?
