Distracted eating is prevalent, whether it be snacking on chips while watching Netflix or working through lunch at a desk. Although it can appear innocent, it could lead you to overeat.
People who were distracted during a meal consumed more calories overall, according to a study of 24 studies. They consumed additional food later in the day as a result of it.
For today’s challenge, refrain from using your phone or computer while you’re eating, and don’t read a book or magazine. Also, turn off the TV. When you’re done, consider how this meal differed from others that you’ve had while distracted.
The idea is to pay attention to what we are eating and the quantity of how much we are eating.
Meaning when you are conscience ” mindful” of how much you have on your plate you don’t have to be calorie counting as much. Now I’m not saying to load your plate with a ton of food but a normal size portion of protein, starches, legumes, or vegetables. This should satisfy your hunger, and do not go back for seconds. Remember it takes 20 minutes for the brain to register the food in your stomach, that’s why nutritionists say not to eat too fast, and to take your time to eat plus it’s also better for digestion. When we eat fast food we feel blotted and uncomfortable because we usually eat this on the run or fast thus the name fast food.
