I Don't Buy It: Weight Loss Sunglasses

Having a little problem with self-control these days? Fad diets failing you? Have you tried Weight Loss Sunglasses ($18.75)? They're blue-tinted glasses that make your food look dull and boring, so you won't want to eat it.

The website selling these specs says that according to "research" (not sure if anyone scientific was in charge of this study, but OK), blue is the least appetizing color on the spectrum. So the theory here is that if your food looks unappetizingly blue, then you won't want to eat it. If you don't eat, you'll lose weight? Hmm. So my question then is, what's stopping the person from removing those sunglasses, seeing their tasty and now un-blue food, and then devouring every last bite?

Seems like an excuse to wear sunglasses inside to me. Are you buying it? Tell me what you think in the comments section below.
