1. Put a mirror in your kitchen
No one wants to see what they look like when they’re indulging in that (second) doughnut, so put a mirror on your fridge and one on your table. From a psychological perspective, our ability to directly associate our appearance with the food that we eat can help us significantly cut down on junk food – and too much food in general.
And the impact of seeing ourselves is not only the association between our looks and what we’re eating, it’s also about how we look while we’re eating. We can boost our self-esteem and reinforce good eating habits by watching ourselves eat healthy food.
