Always keep healthy foods at eye level

Always keep healthy foods at eye level

London: Want to know an easy and effective way to shed that extra pounds? Well, keep healthy foods at eye level in your fridge.

Psychologists say this method could help you lose weight because you eat what you see first.

Simple changes like moving chocolate and crisps out of sight and putting more wholesome foods where they can easily be seen can help dieters to eat better without even realising it.

Serving food on smaller plates and eating in the kitchen or dining room rather than in front of the television can also help you subconsciously reduce the amount you eat without testing your willpower.

Dr Brian Wansink said when our mind is on other things we simply eat what is in front of us whether we are hungry or not.

Avoiding “hidden eating traps” like easily accessible junk food, and having meals at the table where we are more aware how much we are eating, can help us lose up to 2lb a month, studies showed.

“Most of us have too much chaos going on in our lives to consciously focus on every bite we eat, and then ask ourselves if we`re full. The secret is to change your environment so it works for you rather than against you,” the Telegraph quoted Dr Wansink as saying.
