Weight loss can be hard, and following a diet plan is hardly most people’s idea of fun.
However, there is one diet trick that scientists have found could help dieters lose a large amount of weight without trying.
Simply changing the way your kitchen is organised could lead to a lot of weight loss, according to science.
A study from Cornell University in New York found that subjects lost between 1.5 stone and 2.2 stone by moving where they stored their food.
The study “Slim by Design: Kitchen Counter Correlates of Obesity” found that those with food left in visible spaces were heavier.
They found: “The presence of fruit on the counter was associated with lower BMI in both studies, but the presence of foods such as candy, cereal, soft drinks, and dried fruit were associated with weight differences that ranged from 9.4 to 14.4 kg.
“Interpretations Although correlational, the findings from these two studies suggest that when counselling patients regarding their weight, physicians also suggest they clear their kitchen counter of all food except a fruit bowl.”
So, keeping fruit on the counter could lead you on a path to being much slimmer.
However, all other food should be tucked away in the cupboard to help dieters resists temptation.
Another tip to keep weight low comes in the form of particular hot drinks.
Drinking certain weight loss tea could could help you shed the pounds.
While medical experts advise staying clear of branded slimming teas that can often work as a laxative for a whole host of health issues, other natural teas have been found to have some health benefits.
These include green tea, black tea, Oolong tea and puerh tea.
