Whew, that’s a relief. It’s not me, my more and more frequent lack of activity, or deciding to have a double cheeseburger over a salad that put ten extra pounds on my normally average size frame. According to the most recent on-line article it’s my house. I knew I couldn’t trust that backstabbing pile of wood and brick. Okay, silliness aside, there were some household hints that probably could help when it comes to managing eating habits. Obviously the bigger the feeding trough, the more one eats, so reducing plate size makes sense, and so does removing mind numbing televisions from dining areas. But saying that the round shape of your drinking glass is responsible for your round shape is pushing it a bit. It’s an interesting concept, but people generally are not known to expand to fit the size of our cages, aka houses. Frankly, we can blame other people, the fast food restaurant across town, or now our homes, but the bottom line is we make our own choices when it comes to what and how much we put in our mouths. The decision is ours, eat unhealthy snacks and refuse to exercise, or exercise regularly, eat healthier, and be healthier.
