Treadmill...NO!....Diet meal plan....NO!  The best way to lose weight is to buy a blue plate.  Yes, this has some truth to it.  A Boston University psychology study found that eating food from....... plates with "loud" colors, such as red,  can increase your caloric intake by about 25%.  That is why you see those colors at most restaurants.  Take a look next time you are served....especially in a Mexican restaurant.  How about the bold colors used by fast food restaurants.  You know which ones I'm talking about.  The study, which was published in 2004, also found that the best plates to eat off of are blue & white.
