Every time I eat anything, I put it on a real plate whenever possible!
I don't eat out of bags or even the plastic frozen food trays. I keep a real plate at work and I've even stopped using paper plates at home. For me, this makes everything I eat seem more substantial. Plus, washing the plate when I'm finished tells my brain that I'm done eating!

Did you know that the colors red, orange & yellow can actually make you desire to eat something? On the other hand, the color blue can suppress your appetite. Size also has a lot to do with perspective. If you fix & eat your meal off of a small plate, you feel like you are eating more than if you put it on a large plate. Soooo,,, eating your meals off of small, blue plates can trick your mind into thinking you're eating more than you are!
