Distracted Eaters Consume More Calories
(KUTV) A new study says distracted eaters consume more food than people focused on their meal.
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says people who eat while reading or watching TV could eat up to 50 percent more calories.
Researchers say people who aren't concentrating on food are less aware of feeling full and lost track of how much they've eaten.
The people behind the findings think a good diet method could simply be turning off the TV during dinner.
