20 Reasons Why You Just Can’t Lose Weight Yet
Reason #12: You’re always distracted
How many of us are enjoying our meals while watching a movie or scrolling on our smartphones?
Although this practice may seem part of our culture, it can be extremely destructive for your weight loss plan.
Simple as it may seem, eating is a very complex process that requires your full attention and your five senses. Your digestive system must send cues to your brain when it’s full so you know when to stop – but this ability is inhibited by TV screens and other preoccupations.
The result? We end up eating way more than we really need, thus compromising our diet plan.
Here are three key rules to eating right:
- Avoid any distractions (TV, work, smartphone)
- Eat slowly, paying extra attention to the texture, smell and color of your meal
- When you feel full, stop immediately and drink water
