Study: Waistline and refridgerator linked

BOSTON (WHDH) — If you’re calorie counting, but your waistline is still growing, a professor at the University of North Carolina said your refrigerator is to blame.

He said the stockpiling of convenience foods like pre-packaged dinners in the freezer does a number on your waistline.

According to the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, refrigerators now average 22.5 cubic feet, compared to 19.6 cubic feet in 1980.
