Secrets of Success

Trick Yourself With Size & Colors!




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!
