They prep tomorrow’s food
The kitchen isn’t just a place for eating. “Fit people who need to work to be fit—as in, they’re not gifted with a good metabolism—usually prep their food for the next day and think about what they’re going to be eating,” says Charlie Seltzer, MD, a weight-loss and obesity specialist. Having ready-to-go healthy meals handy makes it harder to slip up and scarf down that office cupcake when temptation strikes. Need major weight-loss motivation?
