OBC Food Rules Day 58: Do all of your eating at the table
No, a desk is not a table. if we eat while we're working, or while watching TV or driving, we eat mindlessly-and as a result eat a lot more than we would if we were eating at a table, paying attention to what we're doing. The phenomenon can be tested (and put to good use): Place a child in front of a television set and place a bowl of fresh vegetables in front of him or her. The child will eat everything in the bowl, often even vegetables he or she doesn't normally touch, without noticing whats going on. Which suggests an exception to the rule: When eating somewhere other than a table, stick to fruits & vegetables.
