1. Pay attention to your food
If you eat when you’re stressed or distracted you’re bound to take in excess calories, which, over time, can lead to weight gain. But not only that, eating while you’re watching the game or finishing a report at work will likely leave you feeling far less satiated than you’d be had you been paying attention to your meal. This happens for a few reasons. “Not only do we eat more quickly when we’re mindlessly eating, we tend not to pay attention to taste, texture, or appearance of the meal. Both of these factors can contribute to overeating,” explains Isabel Smith, R.D., a New York City-based celebrity dietitian and fitness expert.
