Fridge Tricks To Keep You Slim

Where you place items in your fridge is proven to have a direct effect on what you eat each

time you open it. 

According to a study by Cornell University, we are 2.7 times more likely to pick up foods

placed in our eye-line and less likely to reach for those in an inconvenient location. 

So next time you unload the shopping, place all the healthy nibbles to the front and push all

your naughty treats to the back. Out of sight, out of mind.

Watch out for red foods

Taste isn't the only factor that draws us to treats, colour also plays a part in what attracts us

 to certain foods. The Journal of Sensory Studies found a busy fridge full of less healthy

 items with bright attractive packaging is likely to distract us from the earthier tones of natural


Red and yellow were pinpointed as particular triggers (the garish McDonalds colour theme

suddenly makes sense) as it signals ripeness, sweetness and calories. 

So, next time you're in the supermarket stock up on bright attention-grabbing healthy snacks

 such as strawberries, peppers and pineapple.
