A new hint for controlling overeating...

WebMD sends me (and lots of you, I bet) tons of emails with sensible tips on all sorts of things, not the least of which is healthy eating...

I know abut stuff like smaller buffet plates and drinking water, but I had no idea the color of your plates and bowls could affect your appetite.

Enjoy, and don't forget the bubble gum for shopping trips:

1. I knew they were going to say that color

They don't use it in restaurants much either. They use red A LOT!

2. It's probably not a recommmended diet but fallling and splitting your face open forces you to

eat slower and take smaller bites and you can only eat pancakes, mashed potatoes, soup, and other mushy delights -- using a salad plate and using an appetizer fork --- because that's as wide as you can open your mouth! Oh, and you'll need a straw to drink. I'd be glad to share my diet with others. So far two months of "dieting" with another 4 -5 months to go.

4. Really sorry to hear that

I recently had a gland infection that caused severe pain on the floor of my mouth while eating. The pain would last at least 20 minutes. It gave me a good reason to fast, but I recovered in a few days.

Wishing you a speedier recovery than projected.

5. Thank you. My mouth and teeth remain numb but I take that as a good sign as the swelling

is nature's way of holding the roots of the teeth in while the healing process is working.
