A study in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics revealed no significant difference in energy intake between overweight or obese women and normal-weight women who used smaller and larger plates at different meals when they were instructed to eat until they were satisfied. Heavier women, however, reported a lower level of hunger before the meal and satiety after the meal compared with normal-weight women, despite a similar consumption level. The findings suggest overweight or obese individuals might be less likely to sense hunger and fullness, researchers said.
