Is your kitchen holding your weight loss efforts back? Making a few small changes can provide the help you need when beginning a Phentermine 37.5mg regimen.
“If you look at most dieters, they try to become slim by willpower. They try to resist every single thing. The problem of becoming slim by willpower is it’s a 24/7 sort of job, says Brian Wansink, the director of the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab. “What we find is that by simply changing our immediate environment … it ends up leading people to mindlessly eat less.”
Use the following tips to make this hub of your home more weight loss-friendly.
Do Not Leave Food Out
Avoid keeping tempting foods in plain sight.
“Simply the presence of food ends up being a really powerful cue,” Wansink notes. “Every time you pass by a cookie jar or a can of soda, you have to ask yourself the question: Do I want one? The answer might be “no” 20 times in a row, but then “no’s” soon start becoming “maybe’s” and the 30th time you look at the snack, the answer will be “yes.”
But Do Use A Fruit Bowl
“Most of us don’t think on a daily basis, ‘Oh I better get a piece of fruit.’ But if you see it seven times during the day, (you may think), ‘Oh, an apple sounds pretty good,'” the health expert says.
Purchase Smaller Plates
Help yourself serve up to 22 percent less food by investing in smaller plates and bowls. A heaping portion of pasta looks a lot smaller on a 12-inch plate than it does a 9-inch plate!
Wrap Leftovers In Tin Foil
Make leftovers much less tempting by wrapping them in tin foil.
“We’re very unlikely to unwrap things that are in aluminum foil, we’re kind of lazy,” Wansink says.
