When it comes to weight loss, is "out of sight, out of mind" the best trick to drop some pounds? The Doctors discuss a helpful weight loss method that is based on what you lay your eyes on when you walk into your kitchen.
“If you can see it in your kitchen, and it’s not as healthy for you. You might want to put it away – hide it, ditch it,” ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says, citing a recent study of 500 moms, who all had at least 2 kids at home, that looked at what types of food and drink were visible in their homes.
The study revealed that moms who left fruit out on the counter, as opposed to a less healthy snack option, weighed an average of 13 pounds less than those who did not have a more nutritional food choice on their kitchen counter.
Another major finding of the study was related to soda being visible and available on the counter. It found that moms with the sugary carbonated beverage sitting on their counters weighed an average of 25 pounds more than those who did not.
“If [soda] is sitting there, either on the counter of in the fridge, you’re more likely to reach for [the soda],” Dr. Stork warns.
Next time you’re laying out snacks or drinks, swap the sweets for fruit and the soda for bottled water!
