THE POWER OF COLORIf you are serious about your weight loss program, paint your kitchen and dining room in earth tones. Brighter colors arouse your appetite, and mellow shades offer contentment and reduces your food craving.
Avoid the fire colors of red or orange in the kitchen, as it encourages your appetite. Instead use colors of blue or black in place mats, dining linens and plates. Better yet, eat on black, square plates. Black makes food look less appealing, and there's less contrast of a food's color against a black plate. Black dampens your inner chi, whereas bright colors make you feel more energized, so you won't feel like eating as much.
