The Simple Mistake That’s Adding To Your Belly

Look around your kitchen. What do you see? If you said “cake”, there’s a good chance you’re overweight.

 

Junk food on the kitchen counter is likely to lead to weight gain, a study in Health Education & Behaviour found.

 

Among men who kept baked foods visible in their kitchen, 39 per cent were obese while just six per cent were slender. (A bowl of fruit was more typical for the slim guys.)
