Ditch Your Trigger Foods
It could be bags of Cheese Curls, home-made flapjacks or that extra spoonful (or seven) of mac ’n’ cheese; whatever your poison, it pays to park it. Particularly any food you have a tendency to overeat or eat mindlessly. Rearranging your fridge may sound way too simple to work, but nutritionist Karen Beck assures us it does: move the foods that you know fuel you and make you feel good to the most visible shelves and shift the unhealthy stuff towards the back. Oh, and while you’re there, clean up your kitchen. Research by Cornell University found that people who displayed junk food on the counter (like biscuits in a glass jar) weighed an average of 12kg(!) more than people who stored food away. Out of sight, out of mind.
