You know how everyone thinks they’re a perfect driver but, statistically speaking, this couldn’t possibly be true? Same thing with those people who say “I don’t get it! I eat nothing and I’m fat” and look mystified.
In an embarrassing number of scientific studies done on the subject, researchers have confirmed that when it comes to guessing how many calories we’re actually consuming, most people are,
shall we say, very forgiving. Just eyeballing food and guessing how many calories are in it is kind of hard, but many people conveniently “forget” that they’ve eaten something in the first place, so don’t even give themselves the chance to guess.
