Daily Tip 2: Are You a Distracted Eater?


These people may look happy, but could they be making a big weight loss no-no? Have you ever sat down in front of the TV with a whole bag of chips, popcorn, pretzels, or crackers only to find yourself grabbing crumbs at the bottom of the bag? You aren’t the only one! It’s easy to keep nibbling away when we are distracted. So what are some simple things we can do about it?

  • Pre-portion your snacks into a small bowl instead of taking the whole bag to watch T.V.
  • Pre-portion your snacks into single serving, on-the-go bags.
  • Eat more foods that are “naturally” pre-portioned like a raw fruits or veggies.
  • Try to eat in the kitchen to avoid distractions like T.V.
