6. Use smaller plates
It’s true, you can devour everything with your eyes. As the resent studies show, if people use big plates and even fill them themselves, they really eat more. As a part of a study the results of which were published in “The American Medicine Journal”, 85 test people were offered to eat a bowl of ice-cream. Besides, all the bowls and spoons were of different size. The scientists found out that those experimental subjects who chose a big bowl ate ice-cream more by 31 %. If ice-cream was plated with big spoons, there was more dessert in a plate by 14,5 %. So, even though plates are of big size and look beautiful, lay them up in lavender. Remember that if you see a big plate, you’ll want to fill it.
