Eating at your table without a book, TV, or a smartphone within your reach can help you eat fewer calories, according to study from the University of Liverpool [ChicagoTribune.com].

Researchers analyzed 24 studies from 1997 to 2011 that used a variety of distractions to impact participants. Participant size ranged from 14 to 122 participants, mostly college students of a normal weight. They found that distraction during a meal can increase food intake by 10 percent. It also increased the amount of food a person ate at other meals during the day by more than 25 percent.
