Dec 10, 2018 Tip

Examine the contents inside your refrigerator. You may have fatty foods crowding out healthier items.  According to research, you’re more inclined to throw out healthy food such as fruits and vegetables if you have more prepared convenience foods stored in your fridge.  The following are ways to make and keep your fridge “diet-friendly”. 

Place some fresh vegetables to snack on, such as carrot and celery sticks, in clear plastic containers.  Put them on the top shelf for easy access.  Place any high fat items, such as the family’s or restaurant leftovers, towards the back.   Also, place water bottles in front of sodas.  You can leave little reminders such as “check me out” on your crisper to remember to eat your vegetables and salads.  Stock your fridge with low-fat condiments such as spicy mustard, balsamic vinegar, and salsa.  Finally, try arranging your foods by meals.  For example, you can place yogurts and milk together for breakfast, or soups and prepared chicken breasts together for dinner.  This will help you reach only for meal items and resist extras.  Try to fix-up your fridge to set yourself up for success on your diet!
