How to Beat Overeating

It’s true what they say—television adds 10 pounds. A recent study shows that TV food ads directly correlate with an increase in calorie consumption. Before you swear off your TV, Health Editor-at-Large, Madelyn Fernstrom, Ph.D., CNS, helps you avoid the television-induced munchies:

  • Don’t watch TV on an empty stomach.
  • Have a low-fat, high-fiber snack beforehand.
  • If you can, fast forward through commercials.
  • The simplest way, watch less TV.
