Mom was right when she said to take small bites of your food.
New research suggests it may trick your brain into thinking you're full faster.
Researchers at Ariziona State gave more than 300 college students a bagel, or one that was cut into four pieces.
They were later given a free lunch. Those who had the bagel cut into pieces ate 25-percent less of their lunch.
Experts say eating four pieces may have tricked their brain into thinking they had more food, while a full bagel is seen as a single portion.
