How a More Daring Diet Leads to Weight Loss

By Yoga Journal


Along with your New Year’s resolution to attempt Side Crane Pose in 2016, research suggests you should get more daring with your diet.

Compared to those who stick to the same rotation of familiar foods, adventurous eaters — people who are open to trying and enjoying a wide variety of uncommon foods (think kimchi, polenta and seitan)–are more physically active and weigh less, according to a Cornell food and brand lab study published in the journal Obesity.

Embracing a more adventurous eating style may be a wise way for people to lose weight without feeling deprived by a strict diet, speculates the study’s co-author, Brian Wansink, PhD. To grow your food repertoire in the new year, sign up for a culinary tour to discover new tastes, take an ethnic cooking class to learn about exotic ingredients, or start rotating dinner club or recipe exchange with friends.
