Set Your Table for Change!
Here are some great fat melting tips from Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Arsenal for Mass Reduction … and an excellent excuse (or reason) to go shopping!
Use dark, small plates! Studies show that people will eat whatever is put in front of them and, in fact, they are actually left feeling more satisfied when using salad sized plates instead of dinner plates. In addition, using dark plates diminishes appetite.
In keeping with the ‘keep me in the dark’ theme, opt for a dark blue or black tablecloth or place-mats.
Use tall, skinny drinking glasses (vs. short and wide glasses). Researchers at the University of Illinois found that we will pour less into tall, skinny glasses than short and wide glasses, even though they hold the same amount of liquid.
Fill two vases with fresh flowers. The first for your dining room table – to create a beautiful and relaxing experience. Choose flowers that delight and feed your soul. The second one should be filled with fresh RED flowers and placed in the entrance to your home. The red flowers with infuse you with energy upon entering and inspire you to cook up something fabulous on your clean stove. (It is clean, isn’t it? Clean stoves give off good energy.)
Candles are always a nice touch for the table. Watch the flames flicker. Hypnotize yourself. “I am feeling quite sated now with one perfectly sized plate of delicious food.”
