Kitchen makeover leads to weight loss
BATON ROUGE - If you've been working out and exercising but aren't seeing results, your kitchen could be the problem. Experts say decluttering your kitchen can help you cutdown on snacking.
First, move healthier foods to lower shelves and put unhealthy snacks in hard to reach places. That increases the liikelihood you'll reach for something healthy when you get hungry.
You should also buy snacks in smaller portions. Research shows the bigger the package, the more your're likely to eat in a single sitting. For example, choosing smaller bags of potato chips will help you consume less.
When you cook food, eat your meals on smaller dishes. According to experts, even if you're trying to eat healthy, a bigger plate leads to bigger portions. Eating off smaller dishes can help you feel like you're eating more. Also, don't serve yourself from the kitchen table. Leaving food on the stove or counter makes you less apt to go back for seconds or thirds.
Finally, avoid doing other activities while eating. When you multitask, it's harder to pay attention to how much you're actually consuming.
