Does a white plate make you eat more? It depends on the color of your food, At the Cornell Food and Brand Lab we found that buffet diners served themselves about 24 percent more when we offered white pasta on white plates, as opposed to white pasta on red plates. The reason: Contrasting colors increase our awareness of how much we consume, so dark-colored plates are best if your serving white foods like pasta, rice, or potatoes.  Snacks that are high in protein reduce hunger, increase fullness, and delay the next eating occasion more than high-fat snacks do, a recent study in the journal Obesity  showed.
