How lighting can help you lose weight
Have you ever wondered why restaurants use dim lights? Could there be a financial gain from creating an atmosphere?
According to research, light can affect the way you eat. Soft lighting can calm us down and makes us more comfortable and disinhibited.
In this state, we want to linger longer…long enough to consider an unplanned dessert or an extra drink, like an extra glass of wine…or sometimes an espresso …at midnight. Basically, the dimmer the lighting, the more you’re likely to eat or drink something you weren’t planning to.
So if your intention is to lose weight, make sure you bring up the lights.
