The loss of weight is not dull when you concentrate on fun, vibrant food. What does that mean? What does that mean? You will naturally create more balanced and healthy menus, only by ensuring a variety of colours reflect your plate. Not everybody has time or energy to count calories, but it takes only a moment to assess the colours on your plate.
Why does colour matter? A significant number of fatty and calorie foods are beige or brown, for example, dairy products and sparkling carbs. If you see too many of these colours on your plate, you 're almost sure of a rise in weight.
Because these beige foods are often high in calories and can make you feel hungry afterwards, a cup of beige or brown beans may have more than 200 calories .... but the bowl is less than a hundred! Fill the meals with fresh greens and deep violet reds, with light yellow-orange, and water, while calories fall, the nutrient content goes up! Moreover, if there are a variety of colours and aroma on your plate, you get more pleasure from eating.
While these ideas may sound whimsical, they are scientifically based. In his book 'How Color Is Your Diet,' Dr David Heber, a famous nutrition expert at the University of California, Los Angeles, identified the role of colour. And note, not match! And a note to blend!
