Boring ourselves fat?

Are you bored? Are you struggling to lose weight? Can you honestly recap what you’ve eaten today?

New research shows 85% of people admit to unconscious eating – where they don’t think about what they eat and certainly aren’t asking themselves if they’re really hungry.

60% of adults say that they know they eat too much, but boredom has been highlighted as the biggest trigger for unconscious eating and may explain why many of us are piling on the pounds.

The study by the Jenny Craig weight management programme found the other top triggers for unconscious eating are depression, watching TV and the desire to feel happy.

Proven in a published clinical trial to be three times more effective than dieting alone, the Jenny Craig weight management programme – which already runs in the US and Australia - brings a new, comprehensive, science-based approach to healthy weight-loss and long-term weight maintenance.
