Several studies have been done to determine if the sequence in which
something is added whether it be food or liquid matters in determining
portion size and calorie count. In one study participants were asked to
combine apple juice with water. If the apple juice was poured first the
amount was 25% larger then if the water was poured into the glass first.
In another study yogurt and muesli were the two components. The amount
of the snack in terms of volume did not differ but depending on which was
put into the bowl first determined whether the yogurt or muesli comprised
the bulk of the meal. The experiment showed that depending on which was
poured first had the greatest impact on caloric intake. This could be a great
tool in weight management.
