Eating in front of a computer can cause you to pack on the pounds! A study conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition proved that those participants who ate lunch in front of a computer (while playing solitaire) reported not feeling satisfied, versus those that ate the same amount without distractions and who instead felt satisfied. Allowing yourself to concentrate on just your meal will help you gauge and appreciate the act of nourishment, and will help you stop reaching for additional calories throughout the day.*
Avoid distractions when you sit down and eat. Instead, concentrate on your food, chew slowly and take the time to appreciate tastes and textures to ensure that you take it all in.
