diet glassesI remember that there was this particular pair of glasses that came in a blue tint that you can see on the right, letting you view your food in a less appetizing manner so that you end up eating less in the process. Well, it seemed like a sham, but here is word of yet another pair of diet glasses, as they are called, which was conjured by Professor Michitaka Hirose and his team at Tokyo University. This particular pair of glasses seem to have a higher degree of credibility, where it is said to lower your appetite levels while letting you feel fuller by playing an optical illusion on you – as it makes your food look bigger. I guess this can also be a libido killer, letting you view your partner as a little bit larger around the waist and thighs, if you know what I mean.

Basically, this pair of diet glasses works this way – a camera is fixed to the glasses, where video is fed through an image processing system on an attached computer. When you eat your food by hand, the camera lets you view your hand as it is, although the food’s appearance can be adjusted to look up to 50% larger. Prof. Hirose’s experiment saw a dozen men and women in their 20s and 30s wear the glasses and eat as many cookies as they wanted, those who saw the cookies as 50% larger ate 9.3% less on average compared to those who did not wear the glasses.
