Does The Color Of Your Plate Really Help You Lose Weight?

Some Say That The Color Of Your Dinnerware Could Actually Be Causing You To Gain Or Even Lose Weight!

So is it true -- Can the color and size of your plate really make a difference when it comes to weight loss?

Well, that's what some researchers are saying -- Studies have shown that the color of your plate can actually make food seem more enjoyable, taste better, and even make you feel like you have eaten more than you really have.

One study, where volunteers received Strawberry Mousse on both a white and black plate, the participants said that the Mousse on the white plate was much sweeter and more enjoyable than the dessert on the black plate.

And a Boston University study found that eating from a red plate could have you eating 25% more calories.

So what color of plate should you be eating from?

Studies have shown that serving your more colorful foods on a white plate will help you to eat much smaller portions.

But keep in mind that the size of the plate can make a big difference too.

For instance, a normal size serving on a smaller plate will seem like you are eating more because it looks like a bigger portion - Which in turn may trick your brain into thinking you are full.

While the same size serving on a larger plate will have you thinking you are eating a much smaller portion.

Now although this may not be an exact science, it can be very helpful to people during Phase 2 (500 Calorie Diet), Phase 3 (Maintenance), and even long after the HCG Diet ends.

However, if you don't feel like going out and replacing all of your dishes don't worry, these days you can buy disposable plates in all sorts of different sizes and colors.

So remember, try eating your more colorful foods on a small white plates -- This should help you to keep your portion sizes under control.

What color of plates do you normal serve your food on?
