Take a stab at this: if your goal is to have a small waistline -- you may want to go for the large fork when dining out.
A new study out of the University of Utah found when customers were given large forks while eating at an italian restaurant -- they ate less food overall.
Experts say it takes time for the "full" signal to reach the brain -- so in the meantime we rely on visual cues to tell us we are filling up.
Having a large fork helps us reach that goal sooner.
When participants were served large portions -- and given a small fork -- they ate significantly more food than those with large forks -- possibly because it took longer to eat their meal.
The results only apply to people eating at restaurants -- not at home.
