Read, Don'T Watch Tv

This Sparked Me!

Every small change helps - sitting and reading for an hour burns more calories than watching TV. Knitting while watching TV burns more calaries than just watching TV. There are always good options - even if you want to just sack out and read a comic book!

    Reading also does not expose your mind to the endless commercials for food (usually high calorie fat and sugar with too much salt)

    And its harder to eat junk & read at the same time...not impossible, but the pages would get yucky!
