Trick Yourself Into Smaller Portions
Do you want to eat less? It's simple - all you have to do is provide more contrast between the color of your food and the plates you use to serve it.
I found this interesting -- according to a recent study -- overserving was reduced when food was served on plates that contrasted in color to those plates. For example, you'll serve yourself less of a red-sauce pasta dish if you eat it on a white plate.
I'm not making this up. Check out Ann Lukits' recent article in the Wall Street Journal to learn all about how this works.
