Everyone is looking for ways to improve their overall health and most have tried every diet on the planet to lose weight. Instead of altering your life overnight, try these 4 simple ways to jump start your way to losing weight and becoming healthier.
The first step is to take a look in your refrigerator. What jumps out at you? The items on the top shelf right? Strategically arranging that top shelf with healthy foods like fruits and vegetables will help you make better choices because you see them first.
Fill your eye-level shelf (or top shelf) with fruits, vegetables, and other nutritious snacks. You’re 2.7 times more likely to eat healthy food if it’s in your line of sight, a Cornell University study says. “That’s also why manufacturers pay a premium to have their products at eye level in stores,” says Kit Yarrow, Ph.D., a professor of psychology and marketing at Golden Gate University.
The second step is to change the way leftovers are kept. Instead of putting each leftover into a separate container, Pack Smart. Put enough leftovers for one meal into one container so you are less likely to snack on readily available portions.
A third way to help jump start better health is to visit the grocery store a few times a week instead of stocking up once every 2 weeks. This will not only help you buy less each time, but you’ll have less food to choose from when looking for a snack!

Instead of laying in supplies for the week, hit the supermarket more often and buy only for the next few meals. An overload of choices at home may deplete your willpower, a 2008 Journal of Consumer Psychology study found. “And people tend to reduce consumption when resources are scarce,” Yarrow says.
Now that you have gone to the grocery store and purchased less, but more healthy foods, you’ll want to always keep these foods in eyesight. When unpacking the groceries, place the tempting, indulgent snacks in the back, keeping the healthy snacks in front. You will be more likely to grab something healthy if it’s the first thing you see when you open the snack cabinet!
