Lifewatch: Grating food

WILMINGTON -- A simple kitchen tool could be the key in helping to manage weight.

A study found that people who use a grater believe they are being served 50% more than people who don't.

According to a doctor, when ingredients are grated, it seems like you are getting a larger portion, so you are satisfied with less.

Not only will the smaller pieces save you calories, but it will spread more evenly throughout the meal.

So, the next time you want to add a high calorie food to a meal, like cheese or chocolate, cut down calories by grating it instead of slicing.
