Sparkly Factoid: The Good Diet Blues

Bring the color blue into your life more often. There’s a good reason you won’t see many fast-food restaurants decorated in blue: Believe it or not, the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant. So serve up dinner on blue plates, dress in blue while you eat, and cover your table with a blue tablecloth. Conversely, avoid red, yellow, and orange in your dining areas. Studies find they encourage eating.

Great. Just great. I have no blue in my house. lol My tablecloth and couch are both red. Perhaps this is the reason I am fat, eh? lol

My dining room and living room walls are a lovely shade of orangey peach...with some fancy schmancy texturizing done by the previous owners.


No wonder I'm fat! LOL!

Actually, let's look at the fast food logos around us...Golden Arches, check. Wendy's...yellow background, check. BK...orange and red.

Maybe there is something to that theory....veddy interesting!
