Stop the Fridge Fight: 5 Tricks to Eat Healthier at Home
The Craving Cheat Sheet
Can't give up that scoop of ice cream or occasional sweet, yet having it in the house is a recipe for a dieting disaster? Flipse recommends the below to curb your craving and slash your calorie intake:
- 2-ounce portions of deli meat
- Mini cheeses, like Mini Babybel cheese that comes in a single serving
- 7.5-ounce Coke mini cans (90 calories each)
- Peeled oranges or melons, stored in Ziploc bags for portion control
Another tip to keep on tap? Eat with a fork. "Most things we eat with our hands are not the healthiest options -- pigs in a blanket, cookies, candy. When you pick up a fork and sit down, you have time to think about what you're putting in your mouth," Carson says.
So the next time you're about to reach for that day-old slice, spend some time giving your fridge a little organization TLC and put a halt to a munching meltdown.
