One day years ago I came home to my mom emptying out the freezer, the cupboards and the fridge. However, she wasn’t removing the food, she was removing the packaging! In an attempt to lose weight my mom was removing all of the temptation. Food companies have some of the best images of food to display to their customers. If you think about it, in a lot of ways this is the only way for food companies to “convince” you to buy their product over the competitors products. That means that their pictures, color schemes, and labeling must draw you in and capture your attention long enough for you to reach out and grab the product off the shelf. These are our fitness tips to arm you with the strength to resist these marketing gimmicks inside your home!
Toss out all packaging that has tempting images and eye catching colors
Place product is BPA free contains or in freezer burn safe bags (for freezer)
Clip off the nutritional facts and the label and place them in the container, this way you still have the nutrition facts with it.
Even if you decide to disregard these fitness tips in your home, you will still have a greater awareness when you go to the store. Theres a reason that all the foods in the picture above are using bright colors, big text, and appetizing images. There’s also a reason that those are some of the most recognizable brands in the united states! Do yourself a favor and toss the packaging to help keep cravings away. This is especially helpful if you are the only one in the family who is trying to eat healthy!
