Published: April 28, 2020

A recently conducted study has revealed that keeping food out of sight may help cut down the appetite. According to, the latest study has found that keeping food away from the table helps cut down calorie intake by about 29 percent. The study was carried out on about 78 adults. The main focus of the study was to see if serving from kitchen shelf or serving from dining table have any impact on the calorie intake of a person. The research study was conducted by the researchers at the Cornell University.

As per, the findings revealed that if the food is not readily accessible, people tend to eat a lot lesser. The study also highlights the importance of dining environment, portion size and size of the plate among other factors. It also said that the very same strategy could be used for increasing the intake of healthy food items. ‘If fruits and vegetables are kept in plain sight, we’ll be much more likely to choose them, rather than a piece of cake hidden in the refrigerator.’ explained Brian Wansink, lead researcher and author of ‘Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think’.
