4. Store Unhealthy Foods Out of Sight
Storing unhealthy foods where you can see them may increase hunger and cravings, causing you to eat more. This is also linked to weight gain.
One recent study found that if high-calorie foods are more visible in the house, the residents are more likely to weigh more, compared to people who keep only a bowl of fruit visible.
Store unhealthy foods out of sight, such as in closets or cupboards, so that they are less likely to catch your eye when you’re hungry. On the other hand, keep healthy foods visible on your counter tops and place them front and center in your fridge.
If you keep unhealthy foods on your counter, you are more likely to have an unplanned snack. This is also linked to increased weight and obesity. It’s better to keep healthy foods, like fruits, visible.
