Research from Cornell Food & Brand Lab suggests that neat kitchens lead to much more stress eating of unhealthy foods compared to clean kitchens.
Uneven kitchen probably leads to weight gain, according to a recent study by Cornell Food & Brand Lab.
One study placed 98 women in two separate kitchens – one was messy and one was organized. Each kitchen contained bowls of healthy and unhealthy snacks such as carrots and cakes.
A summary of the notes found, "When stressed out, women were asked to wait for another person in a messy kitchen – with newspapers on the table, sink in the sink, and the phone ringing – they ate twice as many cakes compared to women in the same kitchen when it was organized and quiet, totaling 65 more calories more in 10 minutes.
