Grazing on Weight Gain

Written by Diet Bites

MOO-VE on over, Weight Gain!

We've all done it - grazed on a variety of goodies throughout the day, just a smidgen here and a tinch there.  And by the end of the day, we may feel as if we have done quite well, calorie-consumption-wise - but did we?

It's a case of 'what we don't know can hurt our diet'.

Let's take a look at Dieter Fabio to see how he mows down his grazing calories....

Grazing Contributes to Weight Gain

Fabio looked down at his swollen belly just before bedtime and blamed the beers, but what really sucked Diet Wind was the pizza and ice cream. By the time he'd mown his way throughout the day, he had almost doubled his recommended daily calorie intake. No wonder his tummy was all blown out!

Sit Down, Enjoy Your Meal

Fabio's disastrous graze-day is a good example of why it pays to enjoy a sit-down meal AND when we can't enjoy a sit-down meal, why we should take time to take stock of what we are grazing on.
