What to do: People who tend to overeat are advised to use crockery of cool shades because blue and green colors supposedly suppress the appetite and calm us down. They aren’t associated with food because food is usually not in such colors (especially junk food).
What happened: I was surprised to find that when surrounded by cool colors I really didn’t want to eat that much. Perhaps the effect is stronger if the food is not truly desired…I didn’t finish this bowl of soup.
Our verdict: This works!
Tip #7: Dine in twilight.
