American scientists have found that the interior of the home can affect our weight.
Researchers at the University of California (USA) conducted a number of studies on how the surrounding interior affects a person's weight and made very interesting conclusions.
Open the curtains
Experts say that dark rooms contribute to gluttony, and the reason for this is psychological. The fact is that it is in the dark that a person relaxes and does not hesitate to treat himself to an extra piece of delicious food. Plus, due to the lack of light, the body's production of vitamin D decreases and the level of ghrelin, the hormone of hunger, rises. Therefore, it is advisable to illuminate the premises well, choose housing with large windows, and open curtains.
It has long been no secret that color also has the ability to influence a person. It is no coincidence that walls in fast foods are often painted in bright shades: orange, bright yellow and even red - according to psychologists and nutritionists, these colors are among those that whet the appetite. It turns out that warm shades make food more appetizing, while light, pastel colors - blue, lilac, beige, pink - soothe hunger. Therefore, it is better to choose cold colors for the kitchen.
Psychologists recommend removing the mirrors where you are doing exercises, as this suppresses the desire to quickly finish the workout.
Hang up the clock
Nutritionists recommend eating food calmly and measuredly, and not on the run. The fact is that those who eat food very quickly gain on average 70 kcal more. To control the process, it is advisable to always have time in front of your eyes. Remember that lunch should be at least 20-30 minutes long.
Choose the right plates
The color, shape and size of the cookware can also affect the weight loss process. So, food looks more appetizing in bright plates, as well as in white ones. Plus, you want to put more food on large-sized dishes, so it's better to choose small-sized dishes.
