Mini Refrigerator
Maximum Weight Loss

office mini refrigerator

How can a mini refrigerator (nice Amazon selection) help you lose weight? Aren't you supposed to stay OUT of the refrigerator in order to drop body fat?

True, but at some point you'll need to eat.

And if you work outside the home, chances are you'll need to eat at some time during "office hours."

(A fridge that actually plugs into your computer. Another that plugs into your vehicle.)

And when that time comes, chances are you'll make a decision based on what's easiest.

It's true. Research suggests that the effort required to attain food is a strong determinant of food choices.

  • More effort = less likely to choose (ex: preparing a meal from scratch)
  • Less effort = more likely to choose (ex: food within reach and ready to eat)

Keep a mini fridge at work and stock it with the foods you should be eating. This way, you're creating an environment that's conducive to meeting your weight loss and nutrition goals.

  • lowfat string cheese
  • individual containers of nonfat/lowfat cottage cheese
