A recent study by Cornell University surveyed 500 women about their willingness to try new or seemingly exotic foods. Those who scored higher on the “adventurous eater” scale tended to have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) than those who were not as willing to try foods outside of their normal diet. According to the study, “Promoting adventurous eating in adults could help individuals lose/maintain weight without feeling as restricted.”
