Washington: If you think eating in a small plate may help you lose weight, then you are wrong.A recent study conducted at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth has revealed that the size of one’s dinner plate does not help to curb energy intake or control portion sizes.“Smaller plates are often recommended as a way of controlling intake, but that simply isn’t an effective strategy,” said Meena Shah, senior researcher and professor of kinesiology at Texas Christian University in Ft. Worth.“There was no plate size, weight status, or plate size by weight status effect on meal energy intake,” she stated.Researchers including Shah, senior researcher, Rebecca Schroeder, lead researcher, and Walker Winn from Texas Christian University, and Beverley Adams-Huet from UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas examined 10 normal weight women and 10 overweight or obese women over two different days at lunch.Subjects were randomly assigned to consume lunch using either a small (21.6 cm) or large (27.4 cm) plate.The meal, which consisted of spaghetti and tomato sauce, was served in an individual serving bowl. Each subject was asked to self-serve the food from the bowl onto the assigned plate and instructed to eat until satisfied.
