Hipsters and frugal shoppers who buy vintage dinnerware at thrift stores or Goodwill are onto something. They may lose weight! Plates from the good ol’ days are typically 25% smaller than modern ones. And the Cornell Food and Brand Lab says adults eat 91.7% of what’s on their plate. So, a smaller plate means less food. Vintage bowls and glasses tend to be 25% smaller too. In fact, a recent study found wineglasses alone have doubled in size since 1990! So, if you love the old fashioned look of vintage plates and glasses, go for it. You’ll be hip – and you just may lose weight.
