One of the first questions many people ask is, ‘What can I do to effectively lose weight?’ Unfortunately what the majority of weight loss seekers fail to come to terms with is to lose weight in a healthy manner, and more importantly keep it off for good, you must take control of your daily nutrition.
Most people are under the impression that exercise is all it takes to lose weight but that actually is not the reality of the process. Exercise will definitely help burn excess calories/fat from your body, but true weight loss success will come at the end of your fork, plain and simple.
Since the refrigerator is the heart of the kitchen, having it properly organized will make the entire process of improving your daily nutrition much more pleasant. Additionally, having a refrigerator that offers healthy choices will help inspire you to stick with healthy eating as long as you make it a point to first get rid of the junk.
What Does The Inside Of Your Refrigerator Look Like At This Moment?
Remember, everyone likely has to deal with 4-6 different moments each day when we’re confronted with an opportunity to eat or drink something. Each one of these moments will challenge your self-control and your willpower will be tested. Each one of these moments will present a chance to take in too many calories.
When you take control of your daily nutrition, you are in essence in control over everything you put into your body. More importantly, you are concerned with eating an appropriate daily calorie total that when maintained will produce weight loss.
That’s why you should take a proactive role in this matter and gain complete control over your refrigerator. Since the frig is where you will hopefully get the majority of your food, drinks, and snacks each day, it’s crucial that it’s organized and inviting.
If your refrigerator is currently a mess, it’s time to start over fresh. Try to empty everything out when you get a chance so you can start with a clean slate. This is also a great opportunity to find out if the “stuff” that’s tucked away on the bottom shelf in the back is still edible or if it’s time to go. Don’t forget to inspect those drawers too because items can often be forgotten once they are closed.
Once you have all the items out of the frig separated into either an edible pile or a trash pile, take a moment to wipe down the inside with a damp soapy rag. It may help to use hot water to get any annoying, crusty stains out. It can also really help to buy a few organizing baskets especially if you have large, open shelves. You can even label the containers so you can always keep them stocked with the healthy items you enjoy eating.
You can’t imagine how inspiring it can be to look at a completely cleaned out, empty refrigerator ready to be stocked. It will look brand new and help motivate you to stick with keeping it clean and organized with healthy foods that will promote healthy eating habits.
So the question you need to address is – What does the inside of your refrigerator really look like?
