Plate color might help control appetite

December 6, 2011

Some researchers say the color of your plate can control your appetite.

A study in the Journal of Consumer Research found that people serve themselves more food if their plate is the same color as their food.

But a white plate makes the same serving size appear bigger because of the contrast.

Is there a color that helps you eat less?

Researchers say, yes, it's blue because it is the least appealing blend with food.
