Can Eating In Front Of A Box Sometimes Be Good?

This Sparked Me!

Even though they don't suggest eating in front of a TV or computer, I do.
I pre-portion my meals. I only eat in front of my work PC. When I have dinner at the table with my family, I'm always the first one done and I feel less fulfilled with my meal....

So, for breakfast and lunch, I take my pre-portioned meal and take small bites between work or the lunch-break spark browsing. I'm usually more involved with the computer than the meal so this helps me to slow down and allow the food to do its magic of making me feel fuller.

    Same thing happens with me! I just make sure that I'm not typing and stuffing my mouth. I have the food next to me, and if I really want it I have to look down, grab a piece, chew, then continue what I'm doing. When I'm stuffed I usually look down to see half of my food left!
