America’s Worst Eating Habits by Toby Amidor in Healthy Tips, November 2, 2011
Don’t you wish there were 25 hours in a day so you can get more of your “to do” list done? This is the mentality of many Americans as they rush to balance work and home life. As a result, we end up having terrible eating habits by shoving food down our throats without taking time to enjoy it. Here are some of the worst eating habits we see every day.
#1: Eating in front of a screen
How many times do you try to get your work done during your lunch hour and eat in front of your computer? You end up mindlessly eating and not even realizing how much you ate. This tends to cause folks to overeat. Even worse, these eating habits are mimicked by our kids. Think about it, do your kids like to eat in front of the TV at night or while they are doing homework?
Solve it: Walk away from the screen, clear your mind and enjoy your food.
