Place the fruit plate correctly
Place the fruit bowl in a prominent place so that if you feel like having a snack and you already reach out to the cupboard with cookies or chocolate, it will definitely catch your eye. Make a promise to yourself that every time you crave a sweet tooth, you'll eat the fruit first. Even if the desire to please yourself with something delicious does not disappear, you will eat less.
Start a sticker board
Set short and long term goals for your diet, write them down on sticky notes and post them where you see them every day - best in the kitchen. On this board, post a list of healthy foods you need to maintain your diet and your exercise schedule. Just do not clutter the board with photos, find a separate place for them.
Hide unhealthy food away
Most of us don't eat because we're hungry, but out of boredom. Therefore, place unhealthy food in the back of the closet, where it is difficult to get it behind bulky dishes or cans of healthy, low-calorie foods.
Fill open shelves with plates
If you have open shelves in your kitchen, remove food from them and place dishes instead. You will receive a beautiful interior solution and get rid of unnecessary temptation.
Organize your refrigerator
Place the healthy items of your daily diet on the middle shelves of the refrigerator, where you can see them immediately when you open the door. If, say, your household is not ready to give up sugary carbonated drinks, at least keep them out of sight - in the lower vegetable compartment.
Divide the daily ration into portioned containers
When you are losing weight, it is important to regularly track your serving size. If you are cooking once a day, divide your daily meal into portions in separate containers. This will remove the temptation to eat more than you need to.
Display healthy foods prominently
Place healthy grains like quinoa, oatmeal, and brown rice in pretty clear jars and arrange them in the cupboard you open most often. This is a psychological trick that can help you form a healthy habit.
Create separate baskets for casual and workout clothes
First, it is hygienic. Secondly, a basket of workout clothes that has not been filled by the end of the week is a clear signal that it is high time to go to the gym.
