Mar 20 2008Dieting: As Simple As Wearing Blue Glasses

Everybody knows McDingdongdonald's and other fast food restaurants use red and yellow colors in their logos and restaurants because they're warm and make you hungry. And that's why they shy away from cold blues, because they have the opposite effect. Well now, thanks to these sweet Japanese glasses, dieting is as simple as rocking a pair of blue lenses! According to a horribly translated article:


It stimulates the physiological circulation of the human that it is appetite the effect of red approaches the brain among non consciousness, would like to eat generally, that it increases. It is said that the appetite it calms the excitation of the brain above that would like to eat blue color conversely, is held down. Those where the color physiology is applied are these sunglasses. “You drink continuously” if and so on poor even with the person where “it moves”, this because just you apply with easily is, it is easy to continue without being chased in stress, probably will be.

Perfect sense. The glasses cost about $20 here, or you can do what I did and take your grandpa's bifocals and cover them in blue magic marker. I must admit -- I'm not feeling very hungry. I am, however, dizzy.

hmmmm... sounds like it's worth a try. Maybe it should be made mandatory that developed countries with obesity rates over 30% have to make all the people wear these glasses... That's what I call a solution that everyone can live with!

Or just don't eat fast food. But it's neat.

That description though, for a moment I got lost and forgot what the hell it was all even pertaining to.

Bad translations rule.

i heard that if u change one of those lenses to red sh*t will pop out at u.

:(

that's one of the best Engrish articles I've seen in a while. It's all clear now as to what they do and how they work.

I'd probably end up eating the glasses.

Could be that I was seeing this woman on fat millionaires . c o m I am sure it is true.

I remember when Blu Blocker sunglasses were all the rage and then they took them off the market because any color with even a little bit of blue in it looked wrong. Green lights looked red and people were crashing into each other on the street because they are stupid. Has nothing to do with these glasses really, but it would be funny if that was the idea: People wear these glasses to "lose weight" because when they walk around they run into walls...dumb

Lmao this scam is still around? Whats the deal with this lose weight while being lazy thing?

It's actually not a scam, for once. The color blue does have a negative effect on appetite. They used to serve "Blue plate specials" on actual blue plates until they figured this out. You'll also notice that there are no naturally blue foods. (Even blueberries are actually purple.) So they actually might help some people.
