Focus on Eating

We're all guilty of eating dinner in front of the TV. Eating a portioned meal from a healthy recipe is completely acceptable, but if you mindlessly eat and snack, you could endanger a healthy lifestyle.

Those who ate distractedly were less likely to formulate food memories and pay attention to signals from the brain that they were full.
