    Women ate 575 fewer calories per day, a 24 percent decrease in calories, when the calorie density of the food provided to them was 25 percent less than normal according to research from researchers at Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pennsylvania, USA. Subjects

    Subjects: 24 young women given meals and snacks 2 days per week for 4 weeks

    The study involved 24 young women who were provided meals and snacks for 2 consecutive days per week for four weeks and no restrictions were put on their eating.



    Conclusion: Reducing calorie density of foods eaten, reduces calorie intake

    “Reductions in both portion size and energy density can help to moderate energy intake without increased hunger,” the researchers concluded.
