Food on the Fly

Rushed meals often mean poor food choices

(HealthDayNews) -- If you want to slim down, don't eat on the run, advises Tufts University.

When you grab a quick bite before rushing out the door, you're more likely to choose something that has poor nutritional value. And you'll probably gobble it up without savoring the flavors and textures of what you're putting in your mouth. Then, to compensate, you'll be tempted to load up on snacks later.

Once you've had enough to eat, it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to get that message to your stomach. But if you eat in a hurry, you could down several hundred extra calories before your stomach shouts, "Enough. I'm full."
