A few weeks ago, Kendall Jenner took to Instagram to post a picture of a newly painted pink wall in her multimillion dollar home. Though the snap was nice to look at, it seemed meaningless until Jenner revealed the scientific reasoning why she chose to paint her wall that specific color.
"I decided to paint [the wall] pink because while I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the room, I went to dinner with friends and they had just gone to the 'Human Condition' exhibition at a former hospital in LA," she wrote in a post on her popular blog.
"They were telling me there's a pink room at the exhibit that had an explanation of the color choice: Baker-Miller Pink is the only color scientifically proven to calm you AND suppress your appetite. I was like, 'I NEED this color in my house!' I then found someone to paint the room and now I'm loving it!"
Jenner, who recently revealed that she suffers from anxiety, seems to have killed two birds with one stone thanks to her shade of choice. And turns out, there most definitely is some scientific research to confirm her claim.
A four-year-long study by the Health, Weight, and Stress Clinic at Johns Hopkins University in 1985 said that almost one-third of 1,700 subjects who struggled with their weight claimed that Baker-Miller pink reduced their appetite.
There's no way of truly knowing if painting your home a certain color will stop you from helping yourself to seconds, but Jenner's Instagram is proof that even celebs are willing to try just about anything to stay fit.
