Ditch Your Trig­ger Foods

Women's Health (South Africa) - - THE FLIGHT THE HOTEL LOYALTY PROGRAMMES PAY NOW, T -

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.
