Obesity will greatly increase the risk of chronic diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, stroke and diabetes, and reduce the quality of life. But you know what? In addition to improper diet and lack of exercise, some home decoration methods may also imperceptibly increase your waistline and make you fat. Life times summed up seven mistakes in home decoration based on a number of foreign studies, so it’s better to check your own home.
A 2005 Mayo Clinic Study of lean and obese people found that obese people sit at least 150 minutes more every day. The living room should be comfortable, but it’s not good for your health if you spend too much time watching TV on the sofa.
Therefore, in addition to the appropriate placement of sofas, chairs, etc., but also the corresponding preparation of dumbbells or tension belt and other equipment, ready to move. The treadmill can be put in the living room to exercise during the advertising time.
Compared with people who sleep 7-8 hours a night, people who only sleep 5 hours a night are more likely to gain weight. A study from Stanford University found that lack of sleep can lead to an increase in hunger hormone (appetite stimulating hormone) levels and a decrease in leptin (appetite controlling hormone).
To avoid sleeping problems, bedroom curtains should be thick and dark, pillows soft and hard and appropriate height, mattress should not be too soft or too hard. In addition, we should keep a regular schedule, avoid the stimulation of caffeine and nicotine at night, and neither go to bed hungry nor after meals.
A study by the American color Institute found that red may promote blood pressure to rise, heart rate to speed up and appetite to increase. Yellow will increase energy, happiness and appetite.
When the walls of the kitchen or dining room are painted with warm colors such as red, orange or yellow, people’s appetite will be opened unconsciously and they will eat more unconsciously. On the other hand, blue can inhibit appetite.
If you are worried about the problem of obesity, it is recommended to paint the kitchen wall light green, the refrigerator light can be replaced by blue, and the tableware can also be blue.
Without food storage cabinet, food will be placed on the coffee table and desktop at will, which can be seen at any time. If you see junk food a lot, you’re more likely to eat it a lot, says Dr. Brian Wansink, director of the Cornell University’s food and trademark laboratory.
Eating the food you see at the first sight is three times more likely than eating the food you see at the fifth sight. “Out of sight, out of mind.” The junk food with polysaccharide and salt should be placed on the upper layer of the food cabinet or in the place where it is not easy to see; the healthy food such as fruits, vegetables and nuts should be placed on the shelf with eye-level height. So should the food in the refrigerator.
Another study by Dr. Wansink found that people who regularly went in and out of the kitchen during the day ate 15% more than those who did not. If the refrigerator is placed in the kitchen, it will increase the number of times people enter and exit the kitchen, and it is easy to be tempted by food.
Dr. Wansink’s research found that the size of the tableware was directly proportional to the amount of food eaten. Eating on a 10 inch plate is 22 percent less than eating on a 12 inch plate. Therefore, you should also choose the right size to buy Tableware.
A study from the University of California found that people eat more when they are in a dark room. Because of this, some restaurants will turn down the brightness of the light to increase people’s appetite.
