Break out the red paper plates for Christmas!  According to Women’s Health,

If you want to eat less you should buy plates on the smaller side in the color red. To find this, researchers gave participants snacks of popcorn and chocolate chips served on either red, white or blue plates. They found that those who munched off of red plates ate less overall than those who snacked off of blue or white plates. Researchers say this probably happened due the color contrast between the food and the dishes, as it makes people more mindful of each bite. Additionally, scientists say it may also happen because people associate the color red with stopping and caution which would subconsciously encourage us to eat less served on dishes of that color. (Women’s Health)

 

We have a feeling that red paper plates will sell out this Christmas.  LOL
