This is the person who sees food and eats it – whether it’s the box of donuts in the break room at work, chips on the counter at home or the leftovers on their child’s plate.

Tips to Manage: Focus on being mindful of what you are eating and eliminate distractions during meals. Savour each bite and try to eat slowly, chewing well and pausing between each mouthful.
