Is Your Kitchen Making You Fat?

I'm sure a lot of people are thinking about their diets again after consuming chips, chili, buffalo wings, and beer while watching the Super Bowl this weekend. One nutritionist recently advised her clients to "close" the kitchen after dinner which entails shutting the door and turning off the lights. Kind of hard to do if you don't have a kitchen door and even harder still if your kitchen is open to every other room in your house! I'm not really a fan of open kitchens because if you entertain, you can't close the door and hide the mess but what if seeing the kitchen all day also causes people to gain weight by always tempting them to eat. There is no "out of sight, out of mind" mentality with an open kitchen. Maybe we should be not just be designing kitchens from an aesthetic stand point but a health one as well. Just some food for thought (pun intended). What do you think?
