It is said that “your health starts from your kitchen”.  Weight reduction is an important step towards health. Weight reduction not only decreases risk of many chronic diseases but also can improve overall well being. Did you know that you may start your weight reduction from kitchen as the first step? Yes,  If your kitchen is stocked correctly, it can make a lot of difference to your eating habits and weight. Here, we list some changes that you can do in your kitchen to shrink your belly!

  •  Reorganize kitchen cupboards: Reorganize the cupboards in a way that the healthiest foods are in the front and the unhealthy food items are kept at the back
  • Clear the counters: Food lying at the kitchen countertops constantly reminds us of its availability and we think “Do I want it?” We might say no to ourselves 50 times, but we will definitely pick it at the 51st visit and start munching. So, it is better not to keep any snacks on the counters.
  • Buy a fruit bowl: Instead of snacks on the counter, place a bowl full of fresh fruits. You can also place the fruit bowl in fridge at your eye level, so that you never miss seeing and eating them.
  • Salad bowl: Cut vegetables and make a bowl full of salad. Keep it in the fridge. Eat a lot of salad, especially before meals to decrease the amount of food and calorie intake.
  • Get smaller utensils: We tend to eat all the food that is served on our plates, hence decreasing the size of plates will reduce the amount of food we eat, which would reduce the calorie intake.
  • Slim down your fridge: Remove all the high calorie items from your fridge like sodas, cookies, ice creams and replace them with healthy stuff. Example, replace the soda, with iced green tea. Iced green tea is rich in antioxidants, which help reduce belly fat
  • Stop bringing serving utensils to the dining table: Leave the serving bowls on the kitchen counters. Do not bring them to the dining table because we happen to eat more when the food is right in front of us.
  • Stop buying certain eatables: Drop some eatables off your monthly shopping list especially the junk food like ice cream, fried food, and soda.
