If you eat a snack and then another, and suddenly, without even realizing you already finished you your lunch, probably is that you were not paying attention to your food. Eat at the computer at your work, hobby can pass you an account of collection that you won’t receive: weight gain. Several of my patients who work very long in their office hours, I have confessed that most of the time, not even take half an hour for lunch, but they do on your desktop, while revised e-mails or finish some pending task. I understand that nowadays there are many jobs that require time, but it is fair that you can take awhile for lunch in peace and away from your desk. Eating deserves all your attention.

It is a gift that you give your body to nourish it and give you everything you need so that you can operate, be healthy / and be productive / to. If you’re chewing while you check your Facebook or while you finish send a message that you had slope, or while you chat with someone, you’ll remove your attention to food and you will not give account of what is what you eat. This affects your health. Why? In the same way that it has been said that watching television to eat is counterproductive because it contributes to weight gain, eating in front of your computer or computer can make you stay hungry and shops to eat more. What is this? Just when you’re eating and doing something else at the same time, your mind is dispersed and not focuses on the activity of eating.

For this reason, when you realize that your plate is empty, also you realize that you not enjoyed the food, and insurance, want more, or will give you desire for dessert. It’s something like the brain is unable to register the amount of food that you ingeriste and you do not feel satisfied / a, so it’ll be more eager to eat or add a dessert. A small study conducted by a group of scientists from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, confirms that it is. This group of researchers found after analyzing 44 men and women, those who had while they were doing some task in computer, they ate many more sweet biscuits half an hour after you finish, that they had without any distraction. This added an average of 250 calories more to your lunch. Do you think it’s worth gaining weight for not wanting to take you off of your computer? In addition, the study found that if you do not put attention to your plate, your memory is altered and next time eat (at the dinner for example) are going to eat more. In short, the computer will make you gain weight. Why, even if you have thousands of tasks to complete, although your boss requires you that you deliver a report before 2 o’clock and you are running to finish it, think of your health: concentrate on your food, go to the Office kitchen or salt to eat something outside, but thinking about your food. That way, the work won’t cause you, in addition to stress, have several kilos or pounds more at the end of the calendar year. Enjoy your meal, savour it, watch it, feel it. You will thus only be satisfied / and do not want to repeat, and with luck, not treats make you lack.
