Want to lose weight the easy way — change the color of your plate! New research published this week in the Journal of Consumer Research suggests the color of your plate matters when it comes to how much you eat at a meal. It’s no coincidence most fast food chains rely heavily on colors such as red, orange and yellow in their advertising and decor. Studies show those colors prompt you to eat more.

However, this new study found people ate more when there was less contrast between the food and the color of the plate used. In other words, when there’s a noticeable contrast between the food you’re eating and the plate you’re using, you can see what you’re eating more easily and therefore you eat less. Of course, it’s not practical to have a different color of plate for every kind of food you eat, but some experts say the best all-around choice is white. Unless of course you’re eating just rice. Then you’ll never know how much you ate!
