Here’s a tidbit from my friend, April Morris. April is a successful entrepreneur and beauty innovator. You may have seen her on ABC’s Shark Tank recently. Read on to learn how something as simple as using a certain color can help you suppress your appetite and help you lose weight.
Of all the colors in the spectrum, blue is an appetite suppressant.
- Put your food on Blue Plates
the munchies disappear
- Dye your food blue! (*use safe food coloring
from a grocery store only)
Why does it work?
Blue food is a rare occurrence in nature. There are no leafy blue vegetables (blue lettuce?), no blue meats and no blue fruits other than blueberries.
Consequently, we don’t have an automatic appetite response to blue. Furthermore, our primal nature avoids food that are poisonous. A million years ago, when our earliest ancestors were foraging for food, blue, purple and black were “color warning signs” of potentially lethal food.
