Step 5—No Eating in Front of the TV

If you eat while watching television, not only are you more likely to spill food on your shirt, you're also more likely to gain weight. Dr. Oz says people consume approximately 225 more calories a day when they eat absentmindedly in front of the TV.

In just one month, that adds up to two pounds!

"Food is precious," Dr. Oz says. "Food is a drug in your body. Take advantage of your power to decide what you want."
