great article. i've noticed that since i've turned off the t.v. during the day (and not watched the food network) i have less of an urge to snack because i don't see food on tv every two seconds. also, since i live in a loft and our t.v./computer is upstairs away from the fridge it definitely helps (when i use the computer downstairs, my back is literally to the kitchen, so it's right there and i snack more cuz it's easier).

another thing that i learned that was not mentioned in the article is that square plates are worse than circle because there's more room for food (too bad, because i LOVE the look of square plates).

thanks for the post.

I think it might partially be true... but I think mostly they want you to redecorate your house.

i can totally understand about the size of your dishes and cups. the more dish i have the more i load it up, same with cups.

i like the spoodle idea!

Very interesting. Last summer I bought all new dishes. Granted they are yellow and blue. But I use the salad plate for my dinner plate. And, we have always used small 4-6 oz glasses for juice.

I think that it's an interesting article. I've heard the thing about colors in the kitchen. I used to work at McDonalds and when the outside was painted the use of red was said to induce appetite.
