Keep Your Mind on Your Eating

Distracted eating is dangerous for your waistline. In a review of 24 studies, researchers learned that attention and memory play a large role in how much you eat. Being distracted while eating—say, by TV, a book, or work—can lead you to eat more, both during a meal and later on. But remembering what you’ve eaten can help you eat less. One way to boost your food memory: Keep a food journal and review it before you eat.
