If you keep junk food (cookies and other “sweets”) on the kitchen counter — or visible elsewhere in the kitchen — there’s a good chance you’re overweight, according to a study in Health Education & Behavior, cited in Men’s Health.
According to the study, 39% of men who kept baked goods visible in their kitchens were obese; while only 6% of guys who kept sweets in sight were slender. (Healthy snacks like fresh fruit or nuts was more typical for the slim guys.)
Here’s why: When you’re hungry, you tend to grab the first quick, convenient snack you see.
To avoid this trap, keep healthy, low-calorie options — like preportioned bags of fresh fruit or nuts — where they are quickly and easily seen and accessed.
