Always sit down to eat
Fifty-nine percent of young women eat on the run, according to a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. Researchers say on-the-go eaters consume more total fat, as well as more soda and fast food. Sitting down to dinner allows you to make more mindful choices about your meal. You’re also more likely to eat slowly, chewing properly and acknowledging each bite, resulting in improved digestion and more mealtime enjoyment.
