Sitting at the table to eat meals makes us aware of what we are eating; the appearance of the food, it’s taste, smell and texture whereas eating from a tray in front of the TV means we are distracted by what’s on and we and tend to eat more.

So, switch the TV off and sit at the table to eat.  Chew your food slowly as this allows time for your brain to register that you are satisfied and prevent you from overeating.  Putting down your knife and fork between each mouthful means you’ll enjoy your food more.
