See Yourself Skinnier

See Yourself Skinnier

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the skinniest of them all? You could be in a new pair of shades!

You’ve heard of it all—pill diets, low-carb diets, the air diet (just kidding!). But sunglasses? Yep, with blue tinted sunglasses, Japanese company Yumetai has created a plan to make you want to eat less. Ever heard the expression, your eyes are bigger than your stomach? These sunglasses will shrink them. Not literally, of course.

With a blue-colored lens, looking through the glasses will make your food look unappetizing. This psychological effect will keep you from eating as much, because really, who wants to eat a whole bunch of blue food? Also, the glasses are supposed to block out red light, which color therapists associate with stimulating the appetite.

For about $19 (1,890 yen), a pair of these aviator-style shades could be yours, straight from Japan. And who knows, you may just start a new fashion trend. [CareFair]
