How many of you have had a fork in one hand and your phone in the other at the dinner table? Good news is your not alone, bad news is that's probably the reason you're putting on weight.
A recent study tells us that by using our phones during meal time we are more likely to consume 15% more calories while staring at our phones. That has caused many of us to pack on the extra pounds. They also say that we tend to eat less healthy foods while doing this.
The study also suggests that staring at a phone screen may distract diners from how much food they are actually eating. That, in turn, tricks our brains into thinking we haven't eaten enough. The study is published in the journal Physiology And Behavior.
