It can be hard to completely avoid junk food.  After all, it is in it's nature to be desirable but if you've swore them off in the new year, this simple trick may help you in your quest. All you have to do is serve the food yourself instead of having it given to you by someone else.  A new study says that people eat less unhealthy food when they’re in control of how much they have in front of them.  In other words, if you have to get up and go to the kitchen to get food, you are more likely to choose healthier food than if someone were to get food for you, where you have no say in the choice. Researchers suggest that this behavior occurs because being less physically involved in serving one’s food allows participants to reject responsibility for unhealthy eating and thus to feel better about themselves following indulgent consumption.
