Shoppers tend to spend more income on junk-food purchases when paying with a credit or debit card then when using cash, according to a study in a Journal of Consumer Research. Paying with cash is more psychologically painful than putting a same amount on a card, dampening a anticipated pleasure of cookies or candy, so you are less likely to toss them into your cart. Leave your cards at home and you'll save green as good as calories. 3. Go blue: The colors blue and purple may act as an appetite suppressant. Avoid painting a walls red, yellow, and orange in a kitchen and dining areas because these colors may make us salivate. Instead, keep your color scheme blue. If your walls aren't blue and repainting is too much, use blue silverware, blue plates, napkins, or place mats. In one study, people who dined in a blue room, ate 33 percent less than those who ate in a yellow or red room. Blue lights make food look less appealing, while warmer colors, especially yellow, have a opposite effect. Fast-food restaurants have known and used this fact for decades, which is w! hy almos t all of them have yellowish interiors--they want you to eat more. 4. Keep your spirits up - emotional eating can wreck any diet: It's estimated which when people overeat, nearly 75 percent of a time, it's because they're feeling blue. Lift your spirits -- small doses of pleasant emotions can quickly renew your ability to say no. Try exercising when you're feeling depressed or meet a friend for coffee; also a little retail therapy never hurt anyone...just don't go overboard! VIEW THE PHOTOS: Hollywoods Hottest Beach Bods 5. Keep food out of reach: Because food is often tied to unhealthy habits - successful diets are about modifying your behavior, whether it be eating different foods ... or changing your environment to practice self-control. Challenge yourself - put foods out of reach. Food is often about location, location, location. One study found which putting candy six feet away gave people a possibility to think more about if they really are hungry and they avoided a temptation to overeat. If you do something as wacky as eating with a different hand, you may learn self-control and which can test a limits of how bad you want to eat a food. This helps distract you! Picking up a fork with a hand you don't usually use automatically slows you down and makes you focus on your meal, two things which have been proven to aid weight loss.Keri Glassman is also a contributing editor at Women's Health Magazine.
