If we keep a track of what we eat in the entire day or week, we might get a mini heart attack, seeing what kind of food we eat and how much, specially when we're not on any particular diet plan. Many people eat when they are working, when they have time on their hands, when they are bored or any time of the day without even feeling hungry. They eat whatever is available without even thinking about its nutritional content. This leads to overeating.
Always you have something better to do. If you want to do something interesting and you do not know what, paint, read, listen to music, you have a lot of things to do. Do not eat if you do not want to do it.
If you are thinking on what to do and you do not know what to do, here is a list of things you can do if you are bored.
SOLUTION: You can avoid mindless eating by drinking water whenever you feel like drinking something and have a chewing gum when you have the urge to munch something.
