Ladies and gents it’s time to put your money where your waistline is! TODAY nutrition expert Joy Bauer has issued a challenge to everyone trying to get in shape and live longer, healthier lives. What’s the challenge you ask? Well, it’s simple, make it a rule to eat meals only while sitting down at the kitchen table. This is an important challenge because according to Bauer:
“It’s incredibly easy to polish off a whole bag of chips or entire row of cookies when you’re mindlessly snacking while watching television. When you’re distracted by the TV, you’re less aware of your body’s internal fullness cues and more likely to overeat. When your meal is your only focus, you’re far less likely to eat past the point of fullness. You’ll be more in control of your eating, which translates to faster results.”
She’s right, I know I can eat my dinner and still eat a bowl of ice cream…or two…while I watch my favorite reality shows. Doing that every day for 365 days is sure to pack on the pounds and not in a good way. If you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to get or stay in shape, this challenge is a simple, yet effective way to help you stick to it and see results.
