We’ve heard before that shopping when you’re hungry is bad for your diet, but you need to add shopping in a rush to that list.
Recent study findings have shown that women who take time over their weekly shop and read the labels on their food as they go are thinner than those that grab ‘n’ dash.
The findings said women who read labels were 9lbs lighter than those who did. That’s over half a stone just by reading, no exercise required!
"Reading food labels is important because it allows shoppers to improve diet quality by making more informed decisions in food purchases," explained Steven T. Yen, a professor from the University of Tennessee who carried out the research into the link between nutritional labels and obesity.
Do you take the time to read what is in your food?
