Why are you not losing weight even with diet and exercise?
Well the answer could be very simple.
We dedicate hours to the gym, believe we’re putting ourselves onto a healthy and balanced diet and yet still the scales don’t show us the figures we wish to see.
But it could be a simple solution: put down your phone.
Yes, our phone can cause provide so much distraction to us, that we’re actually not realising how many calories we’re putting into our body.
Non-distracted eating actually results in us eating fewer calories than we tend to consume. When you’re distracted, you eat way more. 15% more calories.
When we count the calories we consume it mentally starts to get very challenging.
Indeed, this is something you can vouch for having been on a calorie counting diet for several months now.
However, if you were to tell someone to sit down and eat whatever they wanted, but the only condition is they can’t go on their phone or watch TV, “they won’t feel deprived.”
If you stuck to this slightly more unusual method of dieting, after a few months you will notice fat loss.
And you’ll be like ‘I didn’t know my phone was making me fatter.’”
But, It’s not necessarily your phone, it’s just the behaviours it encourages.
You think you’re eating like you normally do, but what you don’t realise, you’re eating fewer calories because you’re not distracted.

Evidence indicates that attentive eating is likely to influence food intake, and incorporation of attentive-eating principles into interventions provides a novel approach to aid weight loss and maintenance without the need for conscious calorie counting.
So, it’s not necessarily a case of put down the fork, but put down the phone, instead.
