6. USING LARGE PLATES
This is something that may – like many of the points on our list – make you frown because why could that make a difference? It’s another subconscious decision that we make – we naturally judge the ratio of food to the size of our plate. If you have a bigger plate, a normal portion would look smaller.
But if you have a smaller plate, a normal portion will take up most of the plate, meaning that you’ll feel as if you’ve eaten more. You will feel full, just not stuffed. It’s also been proven by a study in Spain that people eat less from red plates.
