Avoid Mindless Eating- Eat Out Instead.

Are you having trouble losing weight even though you’re making great choices with all your meals during the day? I have something that may help you. Let me tell you about this great study, and then I’ll share a terrific tip.

 

I’m Dr. Mary Clifton, and I’ve helped thousands of people lose weight with healthy, plant-based nutrition. I can help you get a great body too. I want to tell you about this terrific study I just found.

They followed 1,729 kids, in Canada for two years. The experts measured the students’ types of foods they were choosing and how much TV they were watching. Do you know what they found? Kids who watched the most TV had an increased intake of concentrated unhealthy snacks. Whereas, kids who watched less TV ended up eating more fruit and vegetables, and seemed to enjoy their TV a little more, interestingly.

Try to cut back on your TV time. The distraction, while you’re eating, leads you to some mindless eating. You end up eating more than you expected, perhaps of some unhealthy foods. Even worse, when you’re watching TV, the commercials make you think about unhealthy foods, increasing your desire for low-nutrient junk and sugar that you probably shouldn’t be eating.

Would you like a great healthy trick to prevent this from happening to you. Eat out more. When you’re eating out, you’re in the company of people you love, and you don’t want to overeat in front of people because you want people to like you and be impressed with you.

You will eat quite a bit less. You’re more likely to be able to suggest a short walk afterwards or a little bit of exercise instead of just resting at home after too big of a meal.

Instead of getting takeout, taking it home, relaxing in front of the TV on your own couch, why don’t you eat out with friends? Have a great light meal and plan a little walk afterwards along the boulevard or on the beach or wherever your particular town happens to take you.

A little less TV, a little less junk, a little more you fitting perfectly into your favorite clothes. Tweet This
