We often hear of new ways to diet and one thing many people stress is portion control.

Now we can add a new wrinkle to that. A new study published in Consumer Research says the size of the portion we eat may be influenced by the colors of the dinner ware and table cloth.

When the contrast between the plate and the table cloth was high, i.e. white plate on a black table cloth, the individuals served themselves portions that were 10% larger.

Just some “food” for thought with the holiday’s upon us.

If you have any questions about weight control, dieting, health or plastic surgery, visit my Fort Myers plastic surgeon web site. You may find them answered on my FAQ pages.

Thank you.
