Kendall Jenner's Weird Weight-Loss Trick Involves Paint

We loved Kendall Jenner's Instagram post last month, debuting a rosy pink wall in her living room that showcased her Christmas tree. However, rather than just a trendy paint choice, which we wouldn't think twice about from the supermodel, there's an actual reason why she selected that hue, and the Internet is going wild over it.


Turns out, according to a new post from Jenner on her app, that the color has calming effects, and, wait for it, the ability to help suppress appetite. The latter of the two is the one stirring all the commotion and I bet you can guess why. Supermodels are constantly being criticized in the media for what they eat, or don't eat. Below are Jenner's comments from her post:

"I loved how my flocked Christmas tree popped in front of my newly painted pink wall. But there's actually a funny story behind the color of my living room! I decided to paint it 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.

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!"

But back to reality here...does Baker-Miller Pink really have this effect? Studies have been done as far back as the 1960s on the topic, but are still being debated today. "Based on the history of studies conducted on this color, it looks as though it provides a calming or 'stress reducing' effect," says celebrity nutritionist Paula Simpson. "When we are less stressed, we are less likely to experience food cravings (due to balanced stress-hormone cycles)."
