The research adds weight to the idea humans are smarter eaters than previously thought and shows people ‘right size’ portions of high-calorie foods.
The study, to be published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, is especially significant as it challenges a common view among researchers that people are apt to over consume high-energy foods.
Remarkably, the results indicated a degree of ‘nutritional intelligence’ whereby humans managed to adjust the amount they consumed of high-energy density options.
