Great New Diet – Sunglasses Help Lose Weight [VIDEO]

Wow, Chad and I came across this on “Nothin’ But Net” at 8:10 this morning.  What will they invent next?

Supposedly, using smaller plates for your food makes the portions look bigger. Thus, you eat less.

According to Discover, Japanese researchers have created goggles that make food look larger.

The virtual reality head pieces with built-in cameras manipulate the way food appears while leaving the rest of your field of vision unaffected.

This might really work. Oreos — who doesn’t love Oreos – look twice as big with the goggles on, causing volunteers in the studies to eat 10 percent less than they normally would — but when the effect was reversed to make the cookie look smaller, participants ate 15 percent more.

And since the way food smells has a lot to do with how appetizing we find it to be, the headgear can also emit scents to enhance the perceived sweetness of an otherwise bland snack — which caused 80 percent of the study volunteers to think they were eating something they actually weren’t. Yum-o!

We can’t have them yet but maybe soon. Take a look at them in action below.
