Your environment has a huge influence on what, when, and how much you eat. Cornell researchers found that people who had messy kitchens and kept cereal boxes out on their kitchen counter tops ate more and weighed an average of 23 pounds more than those who didn’t. Other findings included that people who sat at brightly light tables towards the front in a restaurant, were less likely to order dessert than those who sat at dark tables towards the back, and that foods placed in the most accessible part of the refrigerator at home will be eaten first, regardless of what the food is. Make the most of your habitat with respect to dietary awareness and be sure that you are controlling your environment…and not the other way around.
