Healthy Monday: One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

logo-healthy_mondayKeep track of how much you’re eating by living with your food packaging and remains.

One study offering all-you-can eat chicken wings found that participants whose leftover bones had been cleared away ate 34% more than diners whose remnants remained at the table.

That’s a lot of wings! Visual reminders – like candy wrappers, soda cans and take-out receipts – can help you keep track of how much you’ve already consumed, so you’ll be less likely to overeat.

This week take the no-throw challenge and keep your wrappers, empty containers, bones and other bits on the table during the entire meal.
