Vision and color play a major role in your eating habits. A Boston University study found that people will eat 25 percent MORE if food is on a red plate instead of a white plate.

Sometimes a simple solution makes a big difference! For others needing to watch our eating habits, this is also useful information. We should stick to white or light colored plates.
