3. Your Kitchen is The Hub of The Home

Try changing the way traffic moves through your kitchen. Another study from Wansink's Cornell lab shows that people who pass through the kitchen during the day tend to eat 15 percent more than people who don't. If a side or back door into the kitchen is the primary way your family goes in and out of the house, try using the front door more to avoid food temptations. If you work at the kitchen table or talk on the telephone in the kitchen, you will be even more encouraged to take part in mindless eating, so move those activities elsewhere.
