Do This When Eating Out and You Will Double Your Calorie Intake

The American “multitasking” lifestyle is causing serious damage to diets and waistlines. People who log the most screen time on TV’s, computers, or smart phones are also at higher risk for health problems -- and new research is showing it’s not just due to a lack of exercise. They are also at risk for being overweight because they eat while doing these other activities.

The result of recent studies suggest that eating while doing something else leads to less satisfaction with eating, and eating too much later on. In fact, a recent study found that distracted eaters ate up to 100 percent more after the meal.

Health.com reports:

“Distracted eaters also reported being less satisfied and had significantly more trouble remembering what they ate.”
