I’m still amazed (and tricked almost every time…okay, who am I kidding, I’m still tricked every time) when I look at the illusions in the following article. I’d swear one was bigger than the other. I’ve even taken out the scale and ruler…to make sure I’m right…just to find out…WHAT? It can’t be!
There is a great lesson here about portion control with respect to our food consumption. In a world where super-sizing and obesity go hand-in-hand, it’s important to get a grip on our portion sizes now.

So, are optical illusions making you fat or hindering your weight loss efforts? No worries! Turn that problem around and use it to your advantage. Throw out the dinner plates and start using those salad plates for your next entire meal and you’ll find yourself consuming fewer calories, yet being more satiated than before. It’s like magic.
