Health Alert: Diet Mistake

Updated: Monday, April 21 2014, 04:42 PM EDT
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- Monday is the number one day to go on a diet. 

But a new report from "Eating Well" says a dieting mistake might get in the way of your weight loss.  This report took a closer look at the common dieting mistakes we make that work against weight loss.  We stopped out at the Reading Campus of the University of Cincinnati Metabolic Diseases to tell you more.
Researchers found that when it comes to weight loss most of us know to cut back on portions, cut back on calories, eat more produce or fruits and vegetables, but most of us eat too fast.  It's the one mistake they found we all make.  They found that those who went from eating in 9 minutes to eating in 29 minutes dropped about 70 calories per meal.  Which in a day can add up to seven pounds a year.

It was suggested many of us pay attention to this and those who set a timer may notice it helps with slowing down eating.  Especially if you eat a meal in less than ten minutes.  A simple step to add to the others so weight goes down not up.
