If you have a few extra pounds on your person, don’t blame yourself.
Blame Benjamin Moore.
A study published in a recent issue of Contract magazine reveals that people who eat in kitchens and dining areas painted red, orange and yellow feel hungrier. The sunnier hues apparently make food more attractive.
To eat less, we need to surround ourselves with blue light and blue tones…or, at the very least, use blue utensils and dishes to help curb our hunger.
Now they tell me!
My entire house is a tribute to the colors red, yellow and orange. They’re even in my bathroom. I have always loved their energy and fire, but now I guess — deep down – I was really just looking for another excuse to eat.
This revelation has its advantages. Now, if I gain a pound or two, it’s not my fault; it’s the yellow paint in my kitchen. And all those red dishes. Or maybe the orange FLOR tiles in the living room. Heck, I even have a red leather love seat.
I’m the victim here!

Have you ever looked at celebs like Jennifer Aniston and wondered what kind of ridiculous regime is required to keep her looking that way?
Two words: baby food.
Yep. Turns out the latest celebrity craze is the Baby Food Diet. And before you cry “Wha?,” let the concept rattle around in your brain. Have you ever eaten baby food? Some of the flavors are actually kinda yummy. Plus, they have no additives or preservatives, so they’re good for you.
Of course, actresses like Jennifer are drawn to the small portions — just enough to curb their appetite without packing on a lot of calories. And they have lots of choices in healthy fruits and veggies…organics and gluten-free varieties, too.
I haven’t tried it, but I have to admit — I’m kinda warming up to the idea.
And if I thought I’d look anything like Jennifer Aniston when I was through, I’d put a diaper on, too.
