Why You Should Sit When Eating

The Eating Habit That's Causing You to Gain Weight

After a busy day, you rush home, starving and ready to eat whatever you can find in your kitchen. You snack a bit from the fridge, then move to the cupboards, trying to find something that will help stave off hunger until dinner.

If this sounds familiar, it's time to make meals a mindful moment. Eating while distracted is a surefire way to eat more than you intended, since you're not paying attention to whether or not you're full. And if you're constantly grazing, you might not remember to track those calories you're casually consuming — another mistake that can sabotage weight loss. Eating in front of the TV can also be too distracting, so whether you're snacking in front of the fridge or relaxing with dinner on the couch, take a look at your meal habits to see if they are a reason why you're not seeing the scale budge. If they are, move your dinner to the dining room or kitchen table and be sure to pay attention to your body's signals to stop when you're full.
