So They Say: Switch plates to lose weight

So ‘they’ say…

Lose almost 2 pounds a month by switching from a 12-inch dinner plate to a smaller 9 or 10-inch plate.

Why? You automatically serve yourself up to 28% less food!

When it comes to eating less, researchers have long known that a simple way to cut calories is to use a smaller plate.

In one experiment, it was discovered that a shift from 12–inch plates to 10–inch plates resulted in a 22% decrease in calories.

Assuming the average dinner is 800 calories, this simple change would result in an estimated weight loss of more than 10 pounds over the course of one year.
