Health Tip: Identifying Problem Eating

(HealthDay News) -- What you eat, how much you consume and how frequently you chow down all play a part in the likelihood that you'll gain weight.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics mentions these unhealthy eating habits:

  • Consuming too much solid fat, added sugar or refined grains.

  • Skipping meals, or eating too much.

  • Eating too many meals at a restaurant, or in front of the TV or computer.

  • Eating too many calorie-laden snacks, drinking high-calorie drinks or drinking too much alcohol.

  • Eating for emotional reasons, not because you're hungry.
