Amazing this — the color of your plate can affect the amount you eat! Today on GMA Dr. Besser revealed a study that people tend to fill up red or gold plates with more food than if a white plate is used. The example was tomato based sauce on pasta (red) tended to disappear on red plates and the person put more on the plate than those people using a white plate. The best plate color choice? Apparently white! Glad to know that, because I just purchased a new set of daily plates that stack — all in white!
