Drop Pounds Being an Environmentalist

How is it possible to drop pounds by being an environmentalis? According to an article in the October 2010 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, if you or your child is trying to slim down, your surroundings make a world of difference. When Cornell University researchers surveyed 200 dieters, they found that those who altered their environment while eating, stuck to their diet for about two more days per month. Simply by using smaller bowls and plates, and turning off the TV, the “environmentalist” lost slightly more weight. Those subjects who tried to change what they ate (more fruit, for example) or their dining habits (eating smaller meals overall) didn’t lose as much.

Why change your scene to get lean? Making one big decision like replacing large dinner plates with smaller
Ones is easier than trying to resist temptation every single time you eat a meal, the researchers suggest. This smaller plates and bowls will also teach your children to eat smaller portions.
