Study - A Clean Kitchen Helps You Lose Weight

Last updated on: April 22, 2016 11:25 IST

You may not believe your eyes but this is actually true. According to a study conducted by a group of scientists at the Cornell Food and Brand Lab,CornellUniversity, keeping a kitchen clean could stop people from over-snacking and consuming more calories. Another interesting fact about the study is that a cluttered kitchen can cause stress.

The study was conducted with 100 women participants. They were divided in to two groups. One group was asked to sit in a messy kitchen with bits of papers scattered all around and the other group was made to sit in a clean and organised kitchen. Both the groups were given bowls of biscuits and carrots to taste and rate.  

The results were shocking! The participants who were made to sit in the messy kitchen ate twice as many biscuits as compared to the participants in the clean kitchen. Blame it on the stress and restlessness caused by the messy environment.
