Use dimmer switches to turn it down a notch. Very bright lights can arouse the appetite, making you race through meals.Also, go easy on the A/C. The cooler the room, the more you’ll eat.4. Serve from the stove to make seconds harder to reach. Plus less clean up since you didn't dirty any extra bowls.5. Put healthful foods — salad fixings and cut-up fruit for smoothies — at eye level. That way they’ll be the first things you see when you open the fridge. Keep all the high-cal and fattening stuff in the crisper or tucked behind those more nutritious choices.6. Use see-through containers to store good-for-you table scraps, like the last few roasted veggies, a leftover ear of corn, or bits of grilled chicken. By giving them the most visibility, you’re more likely to reach for them. Store high-cal, tempting foods in opaque bowls so that you don’t see them.
