Do You Go Grocery Shopping When You Are Hungry? STOP IT!
We didn't need a study to know this little bit of information. How many times have you gone grocery shopping hungry? Everything looks good...Everything!
I saw this study from Cornell University and it pretty much confirms everything we know about grocery shopping when we are hungry.
According to new research, people who hadn't eaten in the five hours before grocery shopping bought 18% more food, and 31% more JUNK food than people who snacked before shopping. And people who shop in the late afternoon when they're hungry get higher-calorie foods than people who shop right after lunch. (Courier-Journal.com)
This is just one of those tid-bits I thought I would pass along that is easy enough to control and keep in mind if you are trying to stay healthy!
