I've heard people say this before; that eating less shrinks your stomach, making you desire less food in the future. When I looked it up online just now, the first few results conflict:
Among the dieters, gastric capacity was reduced 27 percent to 36 percent, on average, depending on how it was measured. There was no significant change in the control group.
Answer: Myth. Once you are an adult, your stomach pretty much remains the same size -- unless you have surgery to intentionally make it smaller.
It’s more lkely to distend your stomach and cause you to gain weight.
So what's the truth? Does it actually cause your stomach to change size? Does it actually reduce your appetite? Is there actually a direct connection between stomach size and appetite?
