(HealthDay News) -- People who overeat often do so because they're bored, rather than hungry.
How can you avoid the needless calories? The Weight-control Information Network says you should try to stay busy. Here are some of the network's ideas:
- Go for a quick walk around the block.
- Pick up a magazine or book, or turn on your favorite music.
- Find an activity that occupies your hands.
- Sip on an herbal tea (no sugar) or water, or grab a low-fat snack.
