9 Things to Cut Out of Your Life to Be Healthy

Where Do You Eat Dinner?

It is well known that if we are trying to lose weight, we should not be eating in front of the TV since mindless eating often means overeating. However, it seems to me that most of us still carry our plates from the kitchen and plop ourselves down right in front of the TV. Heck, I'll admit I do it too! So I am really curious where we all eat dinner...

Take a look at your answer and if it's not sitting at the kitchen or dining room table, try and make changes to your schedule to allow for actually sitting down and eating twice a week.

I eat dinner in front of the TV on my coffee table because I really don't have a dining table or anything else to eat on... plus the TV is entertaining! :)

Dining room table, but when the weather is nice we like ti light a fire in the fire pit table and eat outside by the pool overlooking the lake, it is really relaxing.

you should never eat somehwere distracting. because for instance (tv, computer) you will not realize how much you're eating and overeat, i like to eat somewhere official at some sort of table like the dining room or a kitchen table because you're dedicating your time to food, and you can really think about and enjoy the food you're eating.

My bedroom, I eat almost all of my meals in my bedroom. My only real downtimes are my meal times, so I try and spend all that time in my room.

I just wanted to add... i grew up sitting around "the family table" and want to stress that i live alone, and don't have room for a table either haha.

I eat at the dining room table with my parents!!! :) we never had the habit to eat where we want, we're kind of traditional in these things, we like to be in family!!

I'm bad, I eat in front of the tv, usually while watching it and typing on my laptop. No wonder I'm always hungry, my mind never gets the mealtime message!

i portion in the kitchen and then eat in a comfy chair... the kitchen table is always buried under my finance homework!

In front of the TV, yes... but usually talking to my husband with something on the TV that we're not really paying attention to. I would *like* to eat at the dining room table, but it's really small, and we can't seem to keep it from filling up with junk mail.

depends on where i am! i am quite busy...so either walking to class or standing at my desk at job #1 (receptionist; we can't sit) and i rarely eat at job #2 (froots, smoothie place) because i'm in charge of everyone when i work so i can't really take a break...and when i'm at home...alone in my room at the computer or watching tv. if that. usually i need to focus on my food. i don't like eating with my family. my mom and i tend to fight around/about food and just makes the experience awful.

Unless I'm eating out, I'm almost always standing at my kitchen counter eating. I very rarely sit down to eat. Not sure why...

In front of my computer, either in the living room or sometimes my bedroom. But I try to sit down at the dining table sometimes too.

i live alone and it's quiet sad when you eat in the dining table alone with your plate so id rather eat dinner in front of the TV

I'm usually so busy in the evening that I much prefer to grab a bite while doing things in the kitchen. But, my little boy absolutely loves for us to sit down together. So, I'm really realizing that dinner time is going to be a very important time for the two of us. And those chores will just have to wait.

It's boring to sit at the kitchen table and eat when it's just you! If I'm not in front of the TV I'm at my table with a magazine or book at least!

We actually just got a kitchen table last night (thank God for relatives with extra furniture!) so the bf and I are going to try and sit at it and eat on most weeknights. But before that I always doled out the portions in the kitchen and made sure that I ate slowly, even in front of the TV. But I know that I always do feel fuller longer if I don't have a TV in front of me.

My apartment is small; I have no table. I'm so comforted by how many people on here don't have a table besides me.
